The Protection Racket

You cannot simply trust in Nanny State
To find your children when they go astray.
We can't just leave our tax cuts to their fate:
Let business help, while we get out the way.

So you have lost your child? Get on your bike.
This culture of dependency must stop.
If you think you can profit by a tyke,
Pick up a new one at your local shop.
