THE SYDNEY RIOTS
I don’t love a racist country
a land of sweeping hate
of rugged men with iron bars
who say they stand up for a mate
I don’t call that madness friendship
I don’t call that loyalty
A communion based on hatred,
That’s not Australian, not to me.
We are all from far horizons
For our beliefs we are to blame
We make choices for our actions
In a world that’s gone insane.
