    HILLSBOROUGH UNCOVERED
    By Agatha Christie


    We are blameless, perfection to the hilt.
    We do nothing wrong, we are without guilt.

    We uphold the law, we know right from wrong.
    We are the police; correct all along.

    We're the law of the land. We know what's best.
    We crush lawbreakers and those who protest.

    We apprehend hooligans, warn the youth
    But someone's discovered.... we don't tell the truth!

    When fans died at football, many years back
    We covered our tracks, so we'd get no flak

    Graves poignant and still, bedecked with flowers
    We now must admit, the lies were all ours.
