Duty of Care – a Lament

Well, what a week it’s turned out to be
Robodebt, cardinals, a long highway search
Loading lots of disquiet on our TV
Looks like duty of care’s fallen off the perch.

Old institutions seem to be crumbling down
Their trustworthiness once worth more than gold
There used to be a value held all over town
A duty of care that could not be sold.

Structures and frameworks are still manipulated
To meet selfish ends no matter how seemly
Clients and customers poorly situated
For duty of care is denied routinely.

How will we fix such a dire situation?
Look out for each other, and eschew frustration!
