Land of The Free aka Clown Shoes

The sentiment (or lack of) of Tony ‘The Bot’ Abbott
(Bot is another name for an arse I’ll have you know)
And Scott ‘No Mates’Morrison (another one to make your heart glow)
Is “We’ll show them how tough Australia is”
No room for poor, impoverished men, women and children here

The thing that they shout towards you,
If you try to come here by boat,
Is that the Indian and Pacific Oceans
Are one super sized, fortified moat

And in the name of ‘National Security’
And as a means to fill you up with fear,
They demonise poor men, women and children
Escaping tyranny, persecution and god knows what else; to get here

So forget the UN Treaty
Consider not whether it’s right or wrong,
So long as we meet our ‘obligation’
So the argument goes, we’re doing absolutely nothing wrong

Modern day Australia like the US and Britain,
Is a so called ‘Land of The Free’
So long as you’re a rich, middle aged, white, Christian male,
Like you and you and you and you and you and in a year or two, like me

So on behalf of the Australian government
And on behalf of all those who voted them in,
For meeting your obligation,
By allowing these displaced people in

I must bow to your sense of compassion,
I must kneel down to your ‘doing what is only right’
And for your barricading these poor fuckers out, I must tip my hat
Unless ofcourse they just happen to be, a cashed up, corporate, fat cat.

So to show my allegiance to Australia and its ways
As that’s the place I spend most of my time you know, these days,
I shall stand up here and debate this issue with everyone of yooooozzz!!
I shall stand up here and shout out loud that this, “Is Fucking Clown Shoes!!”
