The first Children's Crusade enslaved
the gullible and dimwitted.
But none of us - it seems - are saved
from child soldier naifs, outwitted
by propaganda of depraved
greedy predators. Ill fitted
is reason to hysteria -
like talking to diphtheria.
With sincerity beyond doubt,
their decency is weaponised.
The modern Fagins send them out
to pick the pockets of the despised;
with carbon trading there's no lout
to show the theft and be compromised.
As to this rehearsal scheming -
a prelude to taxing breathing.
