ASBO, ASBO little law,

I heard this on this mornings Today program, on Radio 4, and thought I would share it.

Anti-social Behaviour Orders
(to the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star)

ASBO, ASBO little law,
How we wonder what you're for,
Chavs and yobs who love to fight
Terrorise us every night.
Toothless, useless little law,
How we wonder what you're for.

On the streets with hoods and knives,
How they terrorise our lives.
Though they all should be in bed,
All you do is boost their cred.
ASBO, ASBO can't you see
You are an accessory.

ASBO, ASBO, little law,
How we wonder what you're for,
Words will never rule the street,
We need coppers on the beat.
Toothless, useless, little law,
How we wonder what you're for.

This is from Felix Denis's book, When Jack Sued Jill: Nursery Rhymes For Modern Times.

See his website here.

Update 14:07:

I got the above from Maxim magazine's webiste, via this link.

I did not realise at the time that Felix owns maxim, and Dennis publishing.

Haha, I agree about the ASBOs but don't think things should get tougher. While everyone was laughing at the only thing David Cameron has ever independantly gotten right to my knowledge, when he proclaimed "hug a huddy", I was agreeing with the man whole-heartedly! Are you a fan of that poem about immigration that David Cameron recently denounced?!

I agree about the hug a hoody thing.

Inm fact you can read my articles on the subject by clicking on the youth crime label or following this link:

As for the poem, didn't care for it much but would scream about it either. As a party leader though things are different.
