Kiddie Fiddlers – a poem

Kiddie Fiddlers

 

Kiddie fiddlers

In church and state

Covered up and protected

By the prelate.

 

Operating with impunity

To abuse the innocent;

Pretending to live a life

Most decent.

 

Those who should protect

Are the ones to betray.

They need hunting down

And putting away!

It’s in the news again – another Bishop covering up the deeds of a man of god. Paedophiles inveigling their way into churches, schools and youth services in order to get their hands on to young innocent boys and girls. That is bad enough – but what is worse are the hierarchy who, for various reasons, cover it up, move the abusers around and allow them to continue to abuse with impunity.
