Way too much power

Way 
too 
much 
power 
stacked 
up 
on 
the 
shelf,
Almost 
as 
much 
power 
as 
the 
Lord 
God 
himself,
No 
room 
for 
human 
error 
no 
room 
for 
mistake,
With 
a 
long 
list 
of 
families 
and 
hearts 
they 
did 
break,
Whose 
was 
the 
decision?
Who 
deemed 
it 
correct?
It's 
a 
fine 
line 
between 
nurture 
and 
neglect,
Misinterpretation 
is 
just 
no 
excuse,
Is 
it 
child 
protection 
or 
maybe 
child 
abuse?
As 
you 
gather 
the 
details 
each 
in 
its 
right 
place,
Have 
you 
got 
all 
the 
facts 
right 
to 
build 
up 
ya 
case?
Was 
it 
mere 
chastizing 
or 
harsh 
push  
'n' 
shove?
As 
you 
remove 
these 
kids 
from 
the 
families 
they 
love,
And 
the 
homes 
that  
get 
broken 
are 
tossed 
on 
the 
pile,
As  
the 
kid 
with 
no 
mummy 
forgets 
how 
to 
smile,
As 
the 
powers 
that 
be 
sit 
deciding 
your 
fate,
There  
are 
no 
words 
of 
wisdom 
that 
can 
compensate,
So 
where 
lies 
the 
answer 
to 
whom 
love 
deprives?
Given 
way 
too 
much 
power 
to 
play 
God 
with 
kids 
lives.
