While down the hallway he pads,

He knows he’s a case of the “sads”…

Tactical withdrawal

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.

–J.E. Caswell
