SOFT ON CRIME... FEB 6TH,2014


SOFT ON CRIME Feb 6th,2014

BY
JAMES BREDIN

It’s so obvious that our courts have gone soft on criminal crime,
With legal-aid lawyers so criminals are not charged big time,
Soft judges seem to decide and lean towards the criminal’s side,
Criminals seem to walk out of court and they all tend to smile.


And if perchance, they do go to jail, it’s only for a while,
And they’ve been there before many times, so its hardly worthwhile,
And no one seems to notice that the whole system has gone soft,
And that the community as a whole is going down in a trough.


And the politically correct seem to rule the roost,
And their soft left-wing legal ideas have been introduced,
We seem to have lost our way while searching for those at fault,
It doesn’t seem to matter if it was murder or assault.

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
