Hello soupers, if you have read this write you will see I would like to get the Wrong word being used in 'child abuse cases' removed from everyday speech.' we see the prevelant misuse of the word everywhere, my only Understanding of this is that 'some infuential wordsmiths 'warped ones' might I add concocted this description, to gain a legitimisation of the actions of child abusers ' I call to mind the Greek and Roman worlds I beleive 'such a situation existed , and to which cultures educators often point as a beacon of civilisation and we see abuse breaks out 'even in churches ' as satan tries to re-emerge' there We can only trust in Jesus and promote His values as best we might, God bless you all.'
A soiled foul foil, this dirty 'blade' A truthless slithering renegade A ruthless spineless conniving man No of him, I was never a fan. I saw him through the many years I turned the T V channels over I said he is not as he appears. No I was not taken; I was not had. I saw through his false charms I noted the bracelets on his arms I detested his rose coloured spec's No I knew. I saw, the trap he set. I had visions of him seanceing I saw he spoke with dark spirits I knew him; as wholly unclean. No others scoffed he is so good I said see; his style itself it is a lie He is dressed as if he is 25. I pointed ‘its a ploy for the young’ ‘No’ others said, ‘but its harmless fun' I am so sad for his victims of crime I am glad though they are known I am hoping for better all the time. Yes call him evil for it’s the truth Yes he was such a twisted brute Yes an abuser; yes he was a fiend. But to give him a good name Could it be done? In the light of what we've seen? Your answer is in a winsome word Child nurturer even carer protector Oh yes you have rightly so heard. (Paedophile deciphered) It means all those things. I ask you is it more fitting to ascribe This description to a goodly king? Yet for a lowly slinking brute, this gutter-scum of men, to name him so it makes me puke. He'd place the odd blackball I'd say To bar ‘unworthy' men, back in his Day. I bet he loved those black tie do's A charity 'thing' in glistening shoes. The cash the power the contacts Grand He was called a just and upright man. Yet lucifer led 'sir jim' right then He was within the grasp of his hand. ©Joe Maverick 17-2-2018

Powerfully penned poem, bravo joe:-) I'm finding it so difficult to write about this vile monster, he abused so many people yet nothing was done for many years ... another ralph harris with a smile on his face hiding the real truth about his actions. Good luck in the contest:-) hugs Jan xx

Thank you for this comment Jan its hard to understand how people can hurt children, I was not sure how much evil and satan played a part in everyday life but since the events I know of that happened I have had to consider it is more common than I first beleived I suppose we are all able to be attacked by him being human it is up to us to recognise such attacks and try and repulse them, We really need to be tough enough and call on God.'
