While down the hallway he pads,
He knows he’s a case of the “sads”…
From modesty’s call,
Removed him from the category “cads”.
Emotions were few when she left,
Afterwards he felt bereft…
Behind his line
No reaction was fine,
No time for any comments deft!
Putting the badge away he caught,
The winds of regret he saught…
She had moved on
Any feelings of his largely gone,
He did in his role as he ought.
