" THE HAT THAT I WEAR "
by Sgt Marc A. Turner

I work in a place that most would not dare
Many types of hats they ask me to wear
Like a Doctor, a Lawyer, a Referee for a few
A Mechanic, a Bouncer, a Psychologist too

From a baby not breathing, to a bat in the house
To counseling those who fight with their spouse
Iím called on to help with a car that wonít run
And to find the bad guy, a man with a gun

All types of diplomas, all kinds of degrees
Are needed by others who do jobs like these
There are no fancy papers in frames on my wall
But Iím always there when you need me and call

Ready to answer any call that might come
All types of hats though I wear just but one
For the hat that I wear is not fancy or bold
It is simple, dark blue with a shield of gold
