    I guess I will be the first to post in this new forum. I know what you all are thinking, "A SWAT guy that does poetry". Yes, I dabble a little in poetry. It is not that good, but my friends tell me they enjoy it. (Maybe they are lying to me) Anyway, this poem I wrote for my wife (baitedstorm). I hope you all enjoy it. If you don't, don't tell me.....:lol2:

    [c]I gather my tea and gear,[/c]
    [c]Make my toast and leave from here,[/c]
    [c]I see others going to their jobs,[/c]
    [c]They look at me as if I’m a slob,[/c]
    [c]They see my clothes and think I should get a life,[/c]
    [c]But the boredom they suffer you could cut with a knife.[/c]
    [c]They’re heading to their small office space,[/c]
    [c]Looking for the dollar I care not to chase,[/c]
    [c]They are wearing their nicely pressed suits and ties,[/c]
    [c]I’m heading to my office which flows with the tides,[/c]
    [c]My suit is one they only wear on vacation,[/c]
    [c]The one they wait for all year in anticipation,[/c]
    [c]My job is their vacation in the sun,[/c]
    [c]They come to my office for their fun,[/c]
    [c]The ones who thought I was a slob,[/c]
    [c]Are now looking at me while they sob,[/c]
    [c]They now realize my job I truly love,[/c]
    [c]And how my heart is free like a dove,[/c]
    [c]They ask if I have a degree,[/c]
    [c]I say yes – it’s the sea,[/c]
    [c]The ones who criticize my choices,[/c]
    [c]Do not know the sea and its voices,[/c]
    [c]When their vacation is over and done,[/c]
    [c]They head back to their life without the fun,[/c]
    [c]They only spent a week or so with me,[/c]
    [c]But they now miss what they can’t see,[/c]
    [c]Others work in their jobs or professions,[/c]
    [c]My job I love for it’s all my passions,[/c]
    [c]Their job may be important to some,[/c]
    [c]But my job is important for their fun,[/c]
    [c]The short time with me they spend they some to see,[/c]
    [c]My job as a Professional Diver they now wish to be. [/c]


    I hope you enjoyed it.

    Good poem Murph!!! I am not one of those who do poetry. (thankfully, my wife isn't into it either!) but my brother does, he may contribute if you ask nicely, he's not a diver yet, but that's because he's in Iraq and can't just up and go get certified. He is a member of the board though, 2Tours_N_Iraq' and he's an excellent poet. Again, great poem Murph!

    Remember the Samurai were famous for their poetry.

    Good work!
