REGIMENTAL DRESS

Ahh yes Les I must confess
I’m now wearing just the plain PK dress
One jacket coloured UN blue
It is the decent thing to do
With all those badges on my coat
Braided like a Welsh Guard’s goat
Police badge and name tag on my wall
Reminding me of the municipal hall
When I was younger and worked in jail
I had the devil by the tail
Now that I’m old and my hair is white
No longer in the Friday night fight
With broken nose and blackened eye
(Ya shoulda seen the other guy!)
Those were my badges back in the day
When I went to work to earn my pay
With cuts and bruises on display
