As the BBC have been airing ‘Three Girls’, and with the recent arrests in Oxfordshire this is a good time to publish this.

Poem written in June 2014 after a house was raided as part of Operation Kingfisher in Oxfordshire.

Little girls of 13 – 14, 15, 16 twelve.

Who needs a telly in a town like this? When
gossip travels faster than a little girls wish. As it happens,
this news wasn’t something I could miss as the Police vans
pulled up across the road from where I live, where crimes had been
committed that you could not dismiss. Little girls violated,
manipulated – raped, convinced by their captors they
didn’t wanna escape. They loved them, made them feel
special understood them in a way – that their family never
could and conditioned them to wanna stay –

They fill them up with alcohol, weed and crack cocaine
before renting them out to low lives –
always happy to pay –

Little girls of 13 – 14, 15, 16 twelve.

How can you consent to something you don’t
understand? That takes you from
teddy bears onto the witness stand – from cartoons and
dress up dolls and holding your mums hand, to drugs and
prostitution. Little girls exploited –
Into a twisted promised land.

Little girls of 13 – 14, 15, 16 twelve.

I hope that now they’ve got them, these excuses for
human beings, I hope they throw the key away and they are
haunted in their dreams by the faces of the little girls –
whose childhood they stole away and I hope a guilt
erupts in them and drives them all insane – because damaged
little girls are left behind to relive the pain,
and to relive a nightmare – that will never go away.

Little girls of 13 – 14, 15, 16, twelve.

I hope they know it wasn’t their fault.
