The Oath Of Honor

By Robert Longley

It takes less than a minute
To say how you will live
Serving well with honor
With every breath you give

These words aren’t spoken lightly
The oath defines your ways
And the respect you have to uphold the law
Throughout all of your days

Holding close the values
Where you protect and serve
Always with integrity
And never will you swerve

It is these highest standards
That will help you grow and shine
As you take your place in uniform
Part of the thin blue line
