A social worker’s poem

I am a social worker,
I’m really very nice.
I help you loving mothers,
And give you good advice!

Your partner has departed
Your income is too low.
I’m really very sorry,
All your kids will have to go!

Your partner is abusive?
He beats you black and blue?
We’ll soon be there to help you,
And take your children too!

You have a learning problem,
You’re really not too clever
We’ll get your kids adopted
When can you see them?? NEVER!!

Your son is hyperactive?
You need a brief respite;
We’ll soon take ALL your children
Give up the hopeless fight!

Your child was taken into care,
So many years ago
If now you have a baby
That too will have to go!

Foster parents love your kids
To get some more they seek,
For each one brings a tidy sum
£400 per week!!

Children’s homes are run by us,
Where paedophiles abound
Each time we cover up abuse
“The gutter press” come round

“They” said adoptions worked the best
We soon proved that they would
Fathers shout and mothers cry
Their kids are gone for good!

What happens in our special courts?
Our experts they will say
“You’re a danger to your children,
So we’ll take them all away!”

Your children may be healthy,
Happy and well fed
But one day you might hurt them
That’s what our experts said

The judges know that we are right,
With us they will agree
They dare not risk another course
You have no chance you see!

Our special courts are secret,
So don’t you breathe a word
Of what goes on inside those walls
No matter how absurd!

We’ll get your kids adopted,
And don’t you dare complain!
Or you’ll end up in prison
And I won’t say that again!

We have adoption targets,
They must be met you see,
Failure means a reprimand,
So spare a thought for me!!!
