I can’t help but think, that in some ways
‘Australia Day’ is an educational day
When all Australian people are divided,
Now that I can see why…
The audacity of these celebrations causes invasion day campaigners to become reunited
Black and white, rich or poor,
We are all beginning to want and learn so much more
About what the oligarchy should be sorry for.
Sadly, not an ideal way to promote and educate,
Although it is pertinent that thankfully at last, we will all have a debate
With reference to the tragedy and misappropriate timing of this date.
May all of us new Australian’s have our ‘own’ commemorative day
A celebration of privilege, to be living in this lucky new country
In a respectful, moralistic and humble, ethical way’
So, who’s sorry now with all of these protests and shouts?
Rallies around the country, reminding us of the facts…
Our Aboriginal people ARE the traditional TRUE owners of these ancient lands
Commercial news and media in a misinformation, frenzy and furore
They can’t stop Australia and the whole world, from wanting to learn more.
History has long been hidden under the covers,
But on Australia Day, more and more people will discover.
‘Lest we forget’ is the Australian Aboriginal people’s tribal cry…
Millions of Aussies are now beginning to watch and wonder why?
Listen to the news,
Those media views
Propaganda is rife,
But historical facts show that there WAS blood, domination and great sacrifice.
Hundreds and thousands are now joining in these chants,
More history is being uncovered…
About the pillage and profits from native man and land.
I am not an Aboriginal person, but let this be said,
I want to know more about the ‘facts’
I refuse to bury my head.
