Silver Shield on Blue: Verse for the Fallen

The call comes across the state,
A trooper, a hero, on duty, has fallen.
Roadside stops routine, but ever dangerous.
A family is less.
His brothers and sisters in blue hold heads high
In honor, in pride and in sorrow and prayer.
                Oh St Michael, dear St. Jude, please
                Hear my words and bless this officer.
                “In the line of duty” are small words
                Compared to a heart of Trooper Blue.
