Trying to fix things broken

With words softly spoken


Adapting to many things

Embracing all life brings


Deployed throughout the earth

On missions of untold worth

Ambassador commissioned

On a unique mission


Delving into hidden mystery

Often making history


In manner tactful and kind

They leave the past behind

Diplomacy their vocation

From manifold locations


Professional and able

Making situations stable


Perhaps unseen, unknown

Not with a crown and throne


But steady as the tide

Bringing change to abide
