The End of The Police Debating Directive

I didn't know how to bring this to a close. 

But now I do.

"Yet each man kills the thing he loves
By each let this be heard, 
Some do it with a bitter look, 
Some with a flattering word, 
The coward does it with a kiss, 
The brave man with a sword!

Some kill their love when they are young,
And some when they are old;
Some strangle with the hands of Lust,
Some with the hands of Gold:
The kindest use a knife, because

The dead so soon grow cold.

Some love too little, some too long,
Some sell, and others buy;
Some do the deed with many tears,
And some without a sigh:
For each man kills the thing he loves,
Yet each man does not die.

He does not die a death of shame
On a day of dark disgrace,
Nor have a noose about his neck,
Nor a cloth upon his face,
Nor drop feet foremost through the floor
Into an empty space."

- Oscar Wilde.

The Rest is Silence, the full collection of the Police Debating Directive blogs is available now:

Print Edition via Lulu or eBook for Kindle (and the Kindle iApp / Android App).

What a ride. Thanks for coming along.

As for me...I have some dangerous ideas on my mind.
