We are of a different breed

…We are of a different breed.

We run in as everyone else runs out.
We see more in our career than most see in a lifetime.
We put on 20 or more pounds every day at work.
…We are of a different breed.

We joke about things that make others cringe.
We try to keep traditions alive.
We train to fight, and fight to train.
…We are of a different breed.

We miss some of the most important events.
We often don’t get off work on time.
We work day and night, 24/7/365.
…We are of a different breed.

We are called names, but help when you call.
We don’t get snowdays from work.
We work outside in the blazing heat.
…We are of a different breed.

We cry real tears when a brother or sister leaves.
We walk the beat in Heaven when no longer on this Earth.
We lay our life down for our friends.
…We are of a different breed.

We have brothers and sister around the world.
We bleed not red, but blue.
We do our best to keep the wolves away.
…We are of a different breed.

I dedicate this poem that I wrote to all of my brothers and sisters out there who help to keep the wolves away, during the holidays and everyday; both here on Earth, and walking the beat in Heaven.
