Angel and her Brother Toby have been thinking about acts of kindness, particularly as it is Lent. They decided that they would like to visit the Police station to show their gratitude for all that the police do. Toby took a box of biscuits and Angel wrote this amazing poem.
By Angel Couperthwaite.
Thank you for everything you have done
and everything you do,
you help other people all the time-
the girls and boys in blue.
You are a hero to us children,
in you we have great faith.
You don’t need any super powers
to keep us all so safe.
You meet lots of different people
and some very bad ones too,
but the bad ones are in prison now
and that’s all thanks to you.
I can imagine it’s not easy
to do it every day,
you proudly wear your uniform
with not nearly enough pay.
You put yourselves in danger for us,
Something we can’t forget.
We don’t say thank you nearly enough
and that’s something we regret.
