Welfare State of Mind ( Welcum 2 St Kilda Fkn East Coast )

The desperate seek attention
& get it any way they see fit
Better out than in
their weekly battles spill
out of their home ( I use that term loosely )
& onto the street
“Get the eff out u effin little bitch”
The mother doesn’t seem to see
her rotten apple didn’t fall
far from it’s tree
They share their misery
all too willingly
It’s the only thing they give
when they’re not stealing
the shoes from your feet ( literally )
The cycle repeats without rinsing
daughter’s preggers at 15
A termite breaking away from the colony
& promptly placed on a public housing list
Moving on to infest a whole new territory
better still if the father ( hmmm ) is abusive
then she’ll get priority & he can
move back in after she gets
the single parents pension
Along with his disability support payments
for being an alcoholic ( wonder why they call this the ‘lucky country’)
& charity hopping each week
they’ll be living the Aussie Dream
( they call it winning the lottery round here )
Still feel like giving generously to the Salvation Army ???
