ROTHERHAM CITY COUNCIL

ROTHERHAM CITY COUNCIL


(My poem is written without
and prejudice meant to anyone 
in this case) 


Rotherham City Council,
what have you all been 
doing?
When folk ask you this - 
you always do say;
"nothing!"
Bosses at the top - are
they for the chop? 
But now they have all
been caught - are they
the 'cream' of the crop!

No one takes the blame,
for the terrible child
abuse,
Sweep it under the carpet,
sir? We have a lot to
lose!
We all must stick together,
and ignore the vicious
press,
Then hope and pray that
this goes away - just like
Elliott Ness!

The victims, they did suffer,
but no one ever listened,
Now they are speaking out  
against us - are we to 
be imprisoned?
What we did was so very
wrong - and now we have
to pray - 
That more accusations do
not surface - will we get
our way?

We were top dogs - we all
knew best, that is what we
thought,
Now will the victims catch
us now - and grab us by 
the throat? 
This scandal is not good,
as we are now for the chop - 
We, the bosses, really
thought - we were the 
cream of the crop!

The chief of police - they
do deny - and cling on
to their job,
But if they try to run away - 
they'll face a lynch-angry 
mob!
Others too - they keep 
so quiet - and one is in
Australia - 
But never fear, justice is
near - we're coming there
to getcha!

This scandal is so bad - 
and the press are there
to judge,
They think it is like 
Christmas time - they'll
drag you through the
sludge!
But spare a thought for
those victims - of that
horrible abuse,
Let's hope that one fine 
day - justice can call a
truce? 

How many more villains, 
will still be discovered?
Chewing on their finger-
nails - their faces they
are covered.
It is a scandal - that we
know - and the truth will
all come out,
But shame on all those 
bosses - who said they 
all knew NOWT!
