Shrugging Under the Weight of Authority

I would assume
That not many arresting officers
Receive that first phone call
Which might be why
Being the father of a three year old seems to me to be
Easier and
More rewarding than being a police officer
Being the father of a thirteen year old may be another matter altogether but
Right now he’s three
So when he tells me how mean I am
As he hugs me and
Dries his tears on my shoulder
It is hard to get too worked up about
The weight of authority
