Make it right

I’m not indigenous

                             but I care about their rights 

I’m not a refugee 

                             but I care about their plight 

so to all politicians 

                             and members of the human race 

I don’t care if you’re 

        centre left             

                                         or              

                                                          centre right 

                    we all have a moral obligation 

                          to fellow human beings 

if you don’t like what I say 

                                         that’s not a bad thing 

                        it means we’re not robots 

                                   however 

with all the diversity

                                                 and difference of opinion 

                          one thing doesn’t change 

                 All Humans deserve dignity and respect 

          So I’m not indigenous  

                                                         or a refugee 

                  I’m Australian  

                                        and with heavy heart I say 

           to all politicians and members of the human race 

                                 ‘it’s a sorry sight 

so lift your game 

                                                         and make it right’
