In these days of anti-social behaviour 
Nuisance and more petty crime
A way has been opened to broker
An agreement to repair any harm
Restoration, reparation,
agreement, peace

The importance of an admission of wrongdoing
By the person who committed the crime
Helps in bringing all parties together
To discuss and agree in good time
Restoration, reparation,
agreement, peace

Now everyone involved in the process
Must voluntarily agree to take part
Participants can reach an agreement
For a way to put right any harm
Restoration, reparation,
agreement, peace

Being there to consider the issues 
Relating to what has been done 
And with all of the parties permission
We’ll make a way for you all to move on
Restoration, reparation,
agreement, peace

Now for many years this organisation 
Has been working to bring about change
In a way that is seen by their partners
as unique and it works in the main

So, let’s celebrate on this occasion
With her Highness, the good Princess Royal
Who herself supports fairness and justice 
And like ROC is willing to toil.
To bring…
Restoration, reparation, agreement, peace

Written specially for the visit of HRH The Princess Royal to ROC HQ at Partington, Manchester on 17th January 2018.

An honest snapshot of the crazy world we live in and how it hopefully can be fixed.
