What in the world happened to the days

when those knights in shining armor rode in

their swords pulled while fires were a blaze

as they fought foe and dragon to the end.

Damsels and slaves screamed out for help

or the young and elderly scattered to and fro

while a brave knight by a needy body knelt

thinking of a safe haven where they could go.

Police men or women dressed in black, brown or blue

helping as fire men and women fight to put out a fire

While emergency medical technicians take care of you

family, friends and neighbors come to aid the crier.

A police car, a fire truck or an ambulance

are the horses used to come on the scene

No matter who what when or where the circumstance

they're there to help for they alone have the means.

Is it you or is it I that screams out for help

to stop a fight, put out a fire or go to the hospital

as a few brave knights by a needy body knelt

thinking of safety, they take charge in the middle.

What in the world happened to the days

when those knights in shining armor rode in

their swords pulled while fires were a blaze

as they fought foe and dragon to the end.
