Social Services - a poem about children being taken into care

Updated on December 3, 2011

Home from Home

We’re coming to take you away away

We’re coming to take you away

No jokes no laughs or time for tears

You’ll have to come this way

We’re here we’re here we’re here to get you

We’re here to get you away

No door, no walls will keep you here

Your pleas won’t make you stay

Come on come on you little brat

Come on get in our car

No toys no books no personal things

We’re here to take you far

Get out get out you must get out

Welcome to your new home

No mum no dad no brothers or sisters

We hope you feel alone

Cheer up cheer up you must cheer up

What makes you so dejected

No single room, no privacy

Why are you so affected

We give up give up we’ve totally had it

You’ve really been a strange one

No more no more you loner misfit

No more do you need attention

Go on go on away you go

Away you go you go

No tears, no sadness, sense of loss

We’re giving you the toe

Hello hello I’m here again again again I'm here

I want I want my brother and sisters

No doors no walls will keep me out

And I really must insist sir

I’ve come to take them away away

I’ve come to take them away

No ifs or buts or stupid rules

They have to come this way

      This is a wonderful, the repetition of words makes it very effective. I really like the way you wrote this poem.

      Very interesting read.
