To Serve and Protect

To Serve and Protect

 

By Elton Camp

 

The main highway runs through Tinyville

Writing tickets gives its police force a thrill

 

As easy income the fines just can’t be beat

A cop hides behind a sign on its main street

 

Anybody who’s “Not from around here”

To commit a traffic violation better fear

 

It’s how the mayor and council get pay

So “Stick it to ‘em” is what they say

 

If, with anger, any of them should burn

They say public safety is the only concern

 

If the hapless victim continues to pitch a fit

The cop offers a discount for a cash remit

 

If Tinyville happens to be on your route

You’ll likely learn what it’s all about
