Poetry – Honor, Loyalty, Brotherhood

I go to work every morning, you see, I protect and serve.
I have a two-legged partner, and he’s more than I deserve.
He’s like my brother, and for him I would die.
If he asks something of me, there’s nothing I wouldn’t try.

They send me in when it’s dangerous, and lives they could lose.
I don’t worry about it though, there’s not another life I’d choose.
I was born to protect, and there’s nothing I can’t do.
There’s K9 officers everywhere, and they’d die for you, too.

I’ve sniffed bombs on airplanes, and assisted in the chase.
They never get too far, I always win the race.
I’v helped people escape buildings, when they’re lit up in a blaze.
I’ve done riots and stake-outs, sometimes I don’t sleep for days.

I’ve lied by dying children, as a service hound.
Kept my head on their chest, as they can’t make a sound.
I’ve served my country in war time, and I would do it again.
Those boys need a friend like me, cause with war, no one wins.

I’ve been on the front lines, and sniffed out IED’s.
I’ve saved many soldiers lives, I get laid to rest with a wreath.
They’ll a prayer over my body, and thank me for being there.
They know that it wasn’t just my job, for them, I really cared.

I will continue to uphold, the K9 code.
It’s honor, loyalty, and brotherhood; I’ll forever walk that road.
If my partner ever lost me, they’d replace me, I know.
That’s okay, I did my job, and I know he’ll miss me so.
