Moral Compass

The moral compass needle has spun

australian government 

refugees they shun

choice of persecution or death 

vs offshore detention 

refugees still have to run

not to set foot on australian soil

to keep them at sea

the government’s 

given border force a gun

a prosperous country 

a fair go for all

only for some

born under the australian sun

try being Indigenous

cold-hearted treatment 

of  fellow human beings

leave some feeling like scum

so it’s time this country rethinks

how we treat our brothers and sisters

voices need to be heard

so get off your bum.
