26th Jan Australia’s day to celebrate their nation..
Celebrating our brave warriors murders and mutilations
Celebrating our bravest women’s rapes and molestations
Celebrating our bond of family broken by forced separations
All in the name of the great white Australia’s assimilation.
So “please explain” who enjoys a celebration
Of the Genocide of our First Nations…
It’s in the past,get over it they say,
Ok so how about we forget Anzac Day..
For realise we are still, still, STILL prisoners or war,
229 years of terrorism on our shores.
Today we stand strong as we have survived,
BLACK and PROUD, STRONG AND ALIVE!
