    Limerick for a Cop

    THERE ONCE WAS A YOUNG MAN NAMED BEN

    WHO , AT THE TENDER AGE OF TEN

    DREAMT OF BEING A COP

    SO ALL CRIME HE COULD STOP

    TO MAKE THE WORLD SAFE TO LIVE IN AGAIN

    Haha. Some dreams do come true. I always wanted to be a cartoonist/ fireman when I was a kid. Thanks for sharing.

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
