I am the officer

I forbindelse med årets landsmøte leste Vidar Fagerholt diktet I am the Officer.

I am the Officer

I have been where you fear to be
I have seen what you fear to see
I have done what you fear to do
All these tings I have done for you

I am the person you lean upon
The one you cast your scorn upon
The one you bring your troubles to
All these people I have been for you

The one you ask to stand apart
The one you feel should have no heart
The one you call the officer in green or blue
But I am just a person - just like you

And through the years I`ve come to see
That I am not always what you ask of me
So take this badge - take this gun
Will you take it - will anyone?

And when you watch a person die
And hear a battered baby cry
Then do you think that you can be
All these things you ask of me?
