Another One Fell…

Rest in peace Deputy Christopher Dewey -
your service shall not be forgotten.

Another One Fell
By Matt Pierce

Dark glasses can’t hide
the tear stained eyes
of the warriors,
these men and women who aren’t supposed to cry.

The silver covered
by that thin black line
an all too familiar sight this day
along with the pain that no one can hide.

Taps sounds, the guns go off
it only serves as a reminder
of what we all have lost
one more deputy gone.

But the hurt felt will last so long
for no longer in the streets of hell
a final call is given in honor
to another one that fell.


Day four hundred and eight of the new forty – obla di obla da

About Ms. C

I teach at NDSU...but I remain a student of life with all the enthusiasm that entails. My favorite saying is, "Sometimes you have to take the leap and build your wings on the way down." In the new forty that is what I am doing...building my wings.
