A Report I've Read Today ...    
Has Left Me Feeling ... Quite AMAZED ... !!!!!    
      
Forces Types Who Have Some Stripes ...      
Appear To Take Drugs Like ******* ... ?!?      
Or OTHER Drugs Classed As YES ... "  Class A " ... !!!!!      
      
Well .....    
Once They're of A CERTAIN Rank ... !!!      
In An ... EXCEPTIONAL Circumstance ... !!!      
Are NOT To Be Told They've GOT TO GO ... !!!      
      
The Ideas Being SOLD ...      
They Should Get ... REHAB ... !!!!!      
      
And Then Kept On ..................................................      
When Assessed To Be ... " STRONG " ..... !!!?!!      
      
Now Don't Get Me Wrong ...      
But  ... What's Up With THAT Plan .... !!!!!!!!?!!!!!!!      
Are Drug Dealers INSIDE Their Camps ... !!!!!      
Offering Speed ******* And .... CRACK .... !?!    
      
Are They People They Now Enlist ... ?!?      
If You Want The List Try ... " M.I.6. " ... !!!      
      
They Seem To Hold The Keys To All This ...      
And Over The Years Have Given Young Kids This Type of FIX ... !?!      
      
"Who's up for some L.S.D. ?"    
      
"Come on sarge, stop teasing me !      
It helps me deal with things I see !"      
      
But Later On When That Life's GONE .................................      
They CANNOT SLEEP ... !!!!!!!      
Because of BAD VISIONS In Their Dreams ...      
      
" Apocalypse Now " ... Proved This To Me ... !!!      
      
Well ... Like ALI ... !!!!!      
They'd Better BELIEVE ..... !!!!!!      
I'll NEVER Join Their ... DRUGGED Armies ... !!!!!      
      
NO Wonder A Wealth Have KILLED Themselves ... !!!      
The Drugs They're FED AFFECT Mental Health ... !!!      
      
They've Seen BLOODSHED And LOSE Their Friends ...      
And Do This For These ... " Government Men " ...      
Who WATCH This Stuff On ... " News at Ten " ... ?!!!?      
      
They Should Present THE DEAD To THEM ... !!!!!      
Leave Them Lying ... In THEIR Beds ... !!!!!      
      
I Bet They'd QUICKLY ... LOSE Their Heads  ... !!!!!      
      
This Simply Proves They USE And ABUSE ...      
And Send Forces Once ... DRUG Induced ... ?!?      
      
These Days The News Leaves Me Confused ... ?      
    
"DRUGS ARE BAD ... DRUGS ARE BAD ... !"      
      
EXCEPT For CELEBS And OUR Army Lads ... !?!      
So What About Blacks Who They Say SELL CRACK ... !!?!!      
    
There's CLEARLY A NEED In .... " Forces Camps " .... !!!!!      
Would Our Officials ... Sanction THAT ... !!?!!      
      
That Could Be A NEW ... " Rehab Scheme ... ?!?      
Crack Dealing CRIMINALS Supplying Our SENTINELS ... !!!      
      
Isn't That ... CREDIBLE ... ?!?      
They'd **** Two Birds With ... CRACK And SPEED ... !!!      
Keep The Dealers ... OFF Our Streets .... !!!!!!!!      
And Use REHAB TEAMS Like ... " Property " ...      
Make A THRIVING .... INDUSTRY .... !!!!      
    
One That Could Take Squaddies Money ... !!!!      
Then Of Course ... A KNIGHTHOOD For ME ... !!!!!!!      
      
For Contributions To CHEMISTRY ...      
And Policies For HEALTH And COMMUNITIES ... !!!!!      
      
THANK YOU That's GREAT ... !!!      
But ... " LET'S GET THINGS STRAIGHT " ... !!!    
      
Who On Earth Thinks It's OKAY To Send Forces To War ...      
When They're Quite SURE of DRUGS They Take ... !?!      
      
CHEMICAL Weeds And OTHER ... " Class A " ... !!!      
      
Pete Doherty .....      
Should Be Sent With SPEED  ... !!!!!!      
Into Iraq And ... Afghanistan ...        
      
If He Didn't Fight They'd Be Alright ... !!!!!      
Because His Squadron Would Just Get ... " HIGH " ... !!!!!!      
      
They'd Do A BETTER Job Than The ... U.N. Lot ... !!!!!      
It's A CRAZY Plot But ... Doch' Would ROCK ... !!!!!      
      
DON'T Get Me WRONG ... !!!      
He's Got ... PROBLEMS ... !!!      
      
He's Faced The Courts But Of Course ... GOT OFF ... !?!      
Because ... "They Say" ...      
      
"He needs re-hab and should write more songs !"    
      
But The M.O.D. What's Their EXCUSE ... !?!      
For The Masses Paying Tax For ... Soldiers REHAB ... ?!?      
      
Don't Know About You But I Take ISSUE ... !!!      
With Paying For THAT And The War In Iraq ... !!!!!      
      
Now This Is Why I'm A Little Bit MAD ...      
      
Another Report In The News Today ...      
Has Relayed That ... Officials Say ...      
      
"It's time for a change, let's reduce sentences for A.B.H. !"    
      
Specifically Those of Lesser Displays ...      
      
... "COMMUNITY SENTENCES" ...    
And NO MORE Days of Being Sent To Jail ...    
    
For ... ACTUAL ****** HARM ... !?!    
      
Even MAGISTRATES ... !!!      
Are DEAD AGAINST Reducing PUNISHMENT For ..... "ABH" ..... !!!!!      
      
And I Have To AGREE ... !!!      
    
If Someone Tried ... ATTACKING ME ...    
And Was Then SET FREE In The COMMUNITY ....    
I Have To Say ... I'd Feel AGGRIEVED ... !!!!!      
      
What Kind of PENALTY Is CLEANING THE STREETS ... !!!!!      
Government Policies Are CLEARLY ... CRAZY ... !!!!!      
      
A.B.H. ... Is A Form of ASSAULT ... !!!!!      
Need I Say ... ANYMORE ... !!!!    
      
If They CAN'T Control BRAWLS ... !!!!!      
Who's ... REALLY AT FAULT ... !!?!!      
      
Instead of Waging Wars On FOREIGN Shores ...      
They Should Try ... ENFORCING Laws On BRITISH STREETS ... !!!!!      
NOT ... Putting Criminals In COMMUNITIES ... !!!!!!      
      
I HOPE It's NOT TOO LATE ... !!!!!      
That's ALL I Have To Say ...      
      
EXCEPT These Last Four Words ...      
      
" LET'S GET THINGS STRAIGHT !!! "
Sometimes what you read in the British Press, truly leaves you thinking that they have some warped sense of what's right and wrong, this was one of those times !!!
