Cometh the hour
The Nation of Australia, A land my heart holds dear
You have had your spirit tested, as foul people
Fear, yet they know you not as I do.' For your strength
Is deep and strong.' Your minds are mostly fair; your
Intention straight through; clear and long' as you rise your eyes
Are glinting, you sense your time is near I can feel
It's building higher, your desire for the fight, is here
Rights now subverted, You'll take the chance to
Make it right.' So Demand the governor general. ' Remind
Him of his charge, to protect the rights, of people for
Who he's there to care.' Or is he bought and paid
Off? His impartiality a lie.? Perhaps just a gutless
Coward deaf to my nations outcry.? WELL I ADVISE THAT
HE SHOULD LISTEN, FOR THERE'S ONE ALMIGHTY
DIN, THEY ARE GATHERING IN CANBERRA BECAUSE OF THE
'CALLOUSNESS WITHIN.' So be either with the people or
Stand with the condemned' it's time to put up now; or shut up.'
And accept your part in this sin. With two years of inhuman trend.'
What are your intentions David Hurley? Have you a heart?
To even try and make amends.?
