Happy Australia Day

Tomorrow is Australia day, so i thought i would get this off my chest today and enjoy tomorrows festivities.

Happy Australia Day

Woke to a morning that should be fresh.

The Pilliga forest becoming an oozing mess.

A government that has turned its back on the land.

On the people who feed this country, with bloody blistered hands.

Those long deep corporation fingers, piece into the earth.

Extraction at any cost, the race to get it first.

The same long fingers piecing the politicians soul.

It blackens their heart, personal gain their goal.

Treating the people they represent as a joke.

Selling off our future, while on mining dust we choke.

Hunter Valley kids breath in that particle breeze.

If the air was like that in Canberra, the mining would freeze.

We will never have to fear a foreign invasion.

Our government will sell Australia to the highest bidding nation.
