    I go to work six outta the eight (yes 8) days of the week.
    Then I get two days off to finally think.
    At work I laugh, cry, sigh, tell stories and negotiate lives.
    It's like an emotional rollercoaster that might catch up with my insides.
    I listen to people that wanna die.
    Hang up with them and catch a fool on the line committing a homicide/suicide.
    Decided he wanted to share his feelings before he took his final ride.

    I send the cops lights and sirens to take down the thief at the grocery store stealin' baby milk to keep his baby from cryin'.
    We toss his *** on a car and question his intent, but never really caring why and....
    Got some crazy juvenile robbing white boys at the train station.
    Took his $400 out his pocket, then told me the police be hatin'!

    The other day a female stepped off the CTA bus and broke her leg.
    Any elderly couple got hit by a car while riding their bikes and now both are dead.
    20 minutes later, a man crosses the Chicago border and lands in my town.
    Gotta a couple of bullets in him and we're trying to track his shooter down.

    No less than 15 minutes after that, I got a house fire in a roof top.
    Fire blazing and my Engines are enroute.
    Da*n my head is pounding but I don't get off until 10:30.
    I've been at work since 2:15, in the last 4 hours so much has gone down.
    I hope I make the last four...
    'Cause right now, I don't think I can take much more.

    This is my day until tomorrow afternoon.
    Where these crazy folks will continue to kill, steal, robb, and rape one another.
    I'll come in with my big bright smile and try to make the next day go smoother.
    Hoping folks will live life just a little bit more cooler.

    If you have an emergency, feel free to call me.
    I'll do ALL that I can, but don't call me talking about somebody broke in your house and stole your window fan.
    Don't tell me someone is parked in your handicapped space and you're not even handicapped.
    Don't tell me a deer is on your lawn eating grass and you want him gone.
    That's wild life baby he's where he belongs.
    And finally, if you're looking for a number it's 411....
    You people are makin' my day just too da*n long.

    Thanks Sayword....I learned something new today. I didn't know you were a fan of mine. Didn't even know you've read past the two pieces I put up this week, but I am so very glad to know that. Thanks again.
