Short Shrift

Breathing space and distance
Within a spread of listening ears
Not weighed down or set in stone
Letting false hopes smother fears

Society minds hard wired firm
Give economy first position
Meshing gears in one way drives
Where balance sheets deny transition

Little guys with little voices
Half-hearted whispers softly drift
Leaving cliché trouncing wisdom
Denying scruples with short shrift

For all the children like the little chap Peter better known as 'Baby P' who was badly let down by Politicians, Media, Police and Hospitals resulting in his murder. Those with the reins on real power walked cleanly away after scapegoating the inadequately supported frontline helpers.
