Arresting Hope

I used to believe
in what those red flashing lights stood for.
They meant that help was on the way
and that everything was going to be okay.
But when the officers inside
bundled my hero away,
that belief died.
How could everything be alright,
when they labeled the epitome of justice
wrong.
I used to believe
in what those red flashing lights stood for.
But that belief died
when they loaded up hope
and drove him away.

Prompt: Red Flashing Lights
