Walking in I see the beacon calling all in need.
A word in bold white letters—red background.
Open to individual interpretation,
But at the same time very clear and concise.
EMERGE—yes we have—most of the battles have been won
MERGE—a specialty taken from many others
EM—what we call our specialty
ER—what they call our specialty—just like on television—only stranger
ERG—A Dutch word meaning “very”—we live and see the extremes
GEN—as in general—I am a jack of all trades
C—as in see—witness the sad and wonderful lives I come across
Y—as in why—because we are the safety net that catches
Time to work.
