"Vision is not enough, it must be combined with venture. It is not enough
to stare up the steps, we must step up the stairs" - Vaclav Havel
I am not very happy
And am extremely jumpy
Coz, people say you’ve become a big bad bossy kangaroo
Who has perhaps done too much time in the detention centre called your zoo
They say your people-welcoming skills have become rather crappy
It’s wallaby from Mosbi, up late
Ringing from just across the Torres Strait
Have you room in your pouch for just a few more?
It is big and spacious down there I’m sure
Mine’s kinda full, let’s be fair dinkum, mate
You’re the spirit of the great land down under
Where folks of all colour and creed matter
People say you’ve welcomed prisoners before
And have capered past boat people and many more
So why the off-shore prisons now, why, they wonder?
This is magani from waigani calling
To say that the detention centre debacle’s appalling
As you hop from Manus to Daru
And skip from Nauru to Uluru
Please know that your backside’s showing!
