Poem – What Happened to the Soap Box in the Park

What happened to the soapbox in the Park?      

(A time when anyone could speak their views)

I am not sure I’m a full quid

After watching what the Vic police did

To keep opposing groups apart

Let’s look out at how it happened for a start

 

Law abiding citizens hired a venue to air their personal views

Which I thought was their legal right, the same as me and you

However, a tribe chanting “racists” arrived on the scene

Bullying and threatening just like Hitler, Mao and Stalin had been

The mob knew their murky history and knew what to do and say

The brown shirts of yesterday have arrived in OZ to have their way

They hindered the flow of movement and traffic came to a halt

Meanwhile law abiding citizens at the meeting were at no fault 

Enforcement of our laws is becoming more lopsided by the day 

More so when the innocent were charged a fee and must pay

Surely it’s a clear message to louts that they can have their own way 

While for lawful citizens, free speech is now what you’re told to say 

It’s time, fellow Aussies, to get our heads out the sand

There is a clear threat we are losing what was once a lucky land 

If you’re standing on soap box in the park to preach what you believe 

Soon will be Thought Police with arm bands, ordering you to leave

There is one suggestion I will leave you with this very night

Remind every politician that all Australians have rights

To stop appeasing a noisy few and reach out to make us as one

Give us back our way of life, or pack your bags and run

    AUSTRALIA IS IN TROUBLE!
    We have two major parties who have leaders with a pink stripe down their backs. LNP will stand by and let TURNBALL march us to defeat in the next election!
    If there rises from the ashes a real LEADER who will BREAK WITH PARIS and the stupid UN….AND PUT AUSTRALIA FIRST….HE would win hands down.!!!
