You may know me as a mother you may know me as a wife You may know me because I sold you the house that really changed your life You may know me as a daughter You may know me as a friend You may know me as that person Who always a hand will lend You may know me as a poet Who writes a ditty or two Or you may me as the artist Who in school guides a child for you But I am also the person who I never wanted to be Because from last week a master criminal that's me It came as a nasty shock What happened just last week The unsympathetic robotic treatment I received left me upset and very weak All through the day I felt tearful and upset For what I did I Know was wrong And I really do regret But the day did pass And I remembered too When I was a victim of crime And called for help From the boys in blue My home had been violated My car attacked and entered My daughters phone was stolen The thieves had not relented I filled in all the forms To report the crimes at the time And I was given no hope That they would ever solve the crime And truth to tell as time went by Their lack of effort was not a lie In the local paper We all read the news Of the terrible things that is happening And the police just have no clues A lady in Cwmbran Had lost her life last week Murdered in her home Unable to turn the other cheek And just down the road in Malpas A terrible deed was done A child was abducted and attacked and all for a weirdo's fun That crime is not solved or at least they tell us so we all worry what will happen next How far will the criminals go We all hear not enough is done And resources they are lacking For our police to keep us safe and send the criminals packing But Christmas is coming and funds must be found For the Christmas 'do' For the boys in blue and the helpers on the ground But now at least they can boast Finally at last A criminal has been caught for a crime just so vast What is that crime that caused my collar to be felt I was driving from my home Without fastening my safety belt But rest assured I will pay my fine or further action would be taken But do I have faith now in our Local police Oh no!! you must be mistaken!!
