That call took the officers to a bogus emergency
both enthusiastic and dedicated.
Doing their duty never knowing what to expect
at speed they went to aid.
To citizens needing help at a reported break in
the assassin waited within!
Arriving at an empty house on a large estate
ran up the garden path.
There was no warning an evil man came out
automatic gun in hand he fired!
Neither stood a chance they’d been trapped
falling their energy sapped!
The murderer looked at what he’d just done
no remorse in his face or thoughts!
Throwing the weapon down strode to his car
leaving the police women to die!
A mid morning on what was a typical day
now one in history that will stay!
Stunned witnesses tried to give them comfort
but one had died instantly.
The other with somebody holding her hand
as for the killer a wanted man.
An hour later walked into a police station
the public still wait his explanation!
But like so many murders there’s no answers
lives are lost families shattered!
Most have no understanding of these actions
but see violence escalating!
These two deaths show the dangers they face
any time they go out on a case!
The world is not only a danger from nature
but the coldness of many humans!
The Foureyd Poet.
