Dawn Raids

Dawn Raids A sudden crash awakens the night The stomping of thundering boots only to serve to heighten fears Little spot lights are darting across the room Half naked man bewildered and angry His castle has been violated by a wall of blue invaders His is pinned to his bed with a truncheon at his throat The hysterical women is pleading for mercy Unaware of their crimes A singular figure upright and self-righteous In a authoritative voice demands for their passport “Are you married to this woman?” “Are you a permanent resident?” These are the questions being asked by other invaders If this sounds eerily familiar, you would be wrong New Zealand in the 60s, one of her proudest moments Once dubbed the land of milk and honey of the pacific Inviting her brown cousin to part-take in her fortune Then she ridiculed and scorned her guest Labelled over-stayers by her gracious guest With the blessing of the populace white My fellow countrymen do not wish to be reminded of such events In this land of milk and honey covered in sheep dip It is good to remember in case we forget and repeat. Lest we Forget=
