Law And Order - Poem by Richard Allen Beevor

Don't lock him up,
don't make him serve time,
why put him in jail,
he's only committed a crime.
Reduce his sentence
or even set him free,
don't make him suffer,
you know how hard prison can be.

Let's prosecute the victim,
compensation he can pay,
he actually struck this poor villain
and stopped him from getting away,
fine him for assault,
I think he's got a grudge,
'You hurt this poor crooks feelings',
'six months! ' Said the judge.

Lets take away from policemen
their powers of arrest,
put them on traffic duty
restricted to breath tests,
why bother with law and order
just put the honest inside,
the law is an ostrich not an ass,
their heads in the sand they hide.
