    A Cop On the Take

    First he takes ... the oath.

    Now look at what else he takes:

    He takes ... it in stride when people
    call him pig.
    He takes ... his lousy pay check realizing
    he'll never be rich.
    He takes ... a second job sometimes to make
    ends meet and support his
    family.
    He takes ... time to stop and talk to
    children.
    He takes ... your verbal abuse while giving
    you a ticket you really
    deserved.
    He takes ... on creeps you would be afraid
    to even look at.
    He takes ... time away from his family to
    keep you safe.
    He takes ... your injured child to the
    hospital.
    He takes ... the graveyard shift without
    complaint because it's his
    turn.
    He takes ... his life into his hands daily.
    He takes ... you home when your car breaks
    down.
    He takes ... time to explain why both your
    headlights have to work.
    He takes ... the job no one else wants --
    telling you your loved one has
    died.
    He takes ... criminals to jail.
    He takes ... in sights that would make you
    cry.

    Sometimes he cries too, but he takes it anyway because someone has to.

    He takes ... memories to bed each night
    that you couldn't bear for
    even one day.
    He takes ... time to explain to his family
    why he can't make the ball
    game his child is in and
    why he has to work on the
    holiday when other parents are
    off
    Sometimes.... he takes a bullet.
    And yes, occasionally ... he may take a free cup of coffee.

    If he is lucky ... he takes retirement.

    Then one day he pays for all he has taken ...
    .......... and God takes him.

    FOOD FOR THOUGHT:
    Have you thanked a cop lately? Try it.
    When you see a cop in the super market, standing in line in a cafeteria, shopping at Walmart, or anywhere else. Try it.

    It may make the cop's day, and will certainly be a blessing to you also.
