It seems every place should have metal detectors at their doors or some one frisking you so there are no guns that get through entry ways. This is a strong short poem in honor of these men shot in the line of duty.

Hope this did well in the contest.

Keep writing

Joan

    Thanks. No I didn't win, because did not have enough votes. Liberty justice

So many tragic events happening in this world and we keep asking WHY? People have no self control, anger is off the charts, they have a dark and hateful agenda. Your Cinquain pinpoints the uselessness and viciousness of their acts. Marilyn

Some of my children are law enforcement. I knw the feeling as I pray each morning for their safety. Blessed are the peacemakers for they are called children of God. Thanks for sharing.

A very well-written Cinquain about the senseless killings of mad men with guns and motor vehicles, we are living in a very sick world where there is just no respect for another's life.

Very nicely written tribute. This sort of thing is so sad and it keeps on happening daily somewhere or more than one place. It is so senseless. My prayers to all of them and God Bless you for writing about this, to pay tributes and respect to them. Good Luck and Best Wishes in the Contest!! Sherman

    Thanks for your great compassionate review and lovely stars. Police officer, and the general public need to watch around them wherever we go and whatever we do.

    Thanks for your great compassionate review and lovely stars. Police officer, and the general public need to watch around them wherever we go and whatever we do. NEWS stated the Home Deport intervention officer and the Dallas police officer who was killed did NOT even search or handcuff the thief, and the man being arrested had a gun on him--BIG DEADLY MISTAKE.

    You are most welcome ;) I am sad that these things happen. I wish we could change the world. ;)

There is so much grief between the Dallas and Toronto tragedies, and I had not heard that the officer in Texas died. I think most of us are shedding tears today. Thank you for the tribute to the brave, young officer in this cinquain, and best wishes in the contest- Joan

There have been so many incidents like this. I read other people's stories and poems about the Toronto killings. Even when people are denied a gun, they can still find ways to slaughter others. I like your choice of hot tears, as the words reflect the anger you felt, as well as the sadness, when the shooting occurred. You have your syllable count just right for the contest. This projects a lot of emotion, and it is sad to hear about these senseless killings. When will they end? judi

    You're very welcome. I think the police have become overly cautious because there is always the chance they'll be accused of police brutality. judi

reply by the author on 26-Apr-2018
    Yes, but searching and handcuffing criminals is not police brutality. This is No. 1 emergency law enforcement rules and procedures and is urgent to protect officers and the public.

Your contest entry says it all. This is a strong short poem filled with emotion and facts. It also flows well. I completely understand the emotion. I don't understand all of the violence. Good luck.

This work has reached the exceptional level
I just watched this on the "nightly" news. I quote "nightly" because it's just too often anymore and it is sickening! So heartbreaking to see, but I appreciate your poem that pays tribute to those who serve. Your last line, "hot tears." is a great way to make an emotional impact for readers. Thanks for sharing this piece.
