Random Poem:

The badge is gold....

Give me morality. But then again,
What is the definition?
Beyond that which one can see, and another
may not.
Tell me.
What is it that separated fact from fiction?
What is that nagging urge to lie and dare,
beyond the black and white?
No, that can't be.
That is to say what can be done?
What must be done?
Where is that truth, that all must
scrape and lie to uphold?
Doesn;t the phrase go,
to protect and serve.
But to whom may these dogs serve?
For what price might they protect?
