Are We Burning Our Bridges?

Are We Burning Our Bridges?

History is the soul of any proud nation

Deeds in a never ending journey via many stations 

A reminder of who we were and what we are now

A legacy from those who strived with shovel, pick, horse and plough

Recorded are the rights and wrongs and lessons to be learnt

Never should our proud past be shamed, scarred or burnt

 

There are those starved for recognition seeking to change history

No rules for such empty heads and their tantrums are common to see

Planned mischief is their aim and tempts the naive to follow

Going backwards seeking yesterday while stumbling into tomorrow

It’s all about manipulation of power to change our way life

Farewell unity and harmony –welcome diversity and strife

 

The new order demanded by revisionists is busily at work

Never a sound reason from its unknown authors who in shadows lurk 

Christianity is very much on the list as a whipping boy

Ridicule, no xmas cards, tinseled trees or magic toys

Sweet nursery rhymes censored yet blinkers used for drugs and hate in songs  

Jesus is mocked (and please tell me, “what did he do wrong?”)

So here’s to Namatjira, Henry, Banjo and Melba who helped open doors

The migrant, butcher, ANZAC, shearer, Drover’s wife and more

Revere the Pioneers who began the journey to make our country as one

Despite flood, fire, drought and famine, they always won

Shoulder to shoulder, we too must go forward; all for one and one for all  

“To seek tomorrow and honour our past” will always be our rallying call

  1. George is on the money and said it all very well!!GOVERNMENTS in our major countries are allowing and pandering to the left wing minorities .We ,as a country have no LEADERS any more,we are just accepting all this STUPID poofter garbage instead of shutting it down. DO the VOTE with the next election!! STOP this bullshit on CLIMATE CHANGE.Stop throwing money away just to please a few wanking GREEN hypocrites. VOTE ACP .Banardi is our only chance to pull us out of a declining spiral to poverty!! Stop this STUPID INNOVATION which is a fantasy and a job destroyer. START STANDING UP AND telling others WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN. Stop the PC!!
