           Social Workers Creed Visual Poem Image - Social Worker Bust on Stand

 

…We are Social Workers, all with an eclectic dossier

We are educated from many an accredited CSWE academy

We hail with the BSW, MSW or DSW degrees

And, stints of unique supervised fieldwork, has enhanced our abilities

We are licensed, certified or even registered; valid, prudent uniformity

Be it LCSW, LMSW or LBSW; the titles, we display, respectfully

We empower, helping people help themselves; we’ve got the right stuff

We possess dedication, determination and competency; minus the fluff

Sho’ ‘nuf, we are America’s empathetic angels; tuff enough

The NASW Code of Ethics, we staunchly adhere to and abide

Cause it encompasses values, principles and standards to guide

We celebrate March as National Professional Social Work Month, for sure

Yet, throughout the year, we practice what we preach, without forfeiture

We definitely make a difference, free of an air of flare

We are authentic and resolute, with lots of care

We claim it; we are judicious Social Workers, extraordinaire

Social Work heroes; worthy of a Bust on a Stand; forever, there...

...both looking forward to a wonderful life 

And, at, last, we are pronounced as Mr. and Mrs 

Forever and ever, we will be, husband and wife 

The four-tier cake was sliced with a platinum gold knife

Lastly, we toasted with crystal glasses, tilted, upright...
