For Austrian authorities who missed 24 years of clues of emprisonment and incest

                                                                                    Sex doll

                                                                                    Sex doll

                                                                                    Take the doll home

                                                                                    Build the doll a warm place

                                                                                    Teach her how to walk

                                                                                    Show her how to stretch-out wide,

                                                                                    cartwheel and push

                                                                                    Make her say ‘daddy’

                                                                                    Oh oh

“…..though the Austrian authorities have always insisted that they bear no responsibility for Josef Fritzl’s 24-year incarceration of his daughter, Elisabeth, evidence I have seen suggests that this often flagrant criminal left a staggering number of clues in his wake – clues that were repeatedly ignored by social workers, the police and the judiciary.”

  1. Your poem and the story you linked to (which mentions the book “The Crimes of Josef Fritzl: Uncovering The Truth” by Stefanie Marsh and Bojan Pancevski) are the very truths that need to be discussed, no matter how uncomfortable it may be, so that it doesn’t easily happen again.
