Blacklisted -21/11/2011



our fathers politics the teeth stuck
in our ears

Andrew bolt-action beliefs
poles piping up
barrels of a rifle
for pepper spraying
pensioner protesters
to de-occupy
and nullify
the vox populi

propping up a cyclone fence
that cannot be stretched
around enough coast line
to cover up the whole truth

melting with a patience
that can't be disproved
or swept under
the lowest common
of scientific investigation

polarise us
double negative
like how big business
continually wipes it's arse
with our money

an imaginary friend
pretending underdog
to rose tint
this soldier ant system
the black face white lies
caught red handed
in grey areas of
human rights
human wrongs
and assertions
that any question
could somehow be dangerous

if it needs you to fear
if it needs you to hate
if it needs you to find
foreigners to blame

then turn away
from each lie
case by case
because racism
and distortion of science
are in evidence

the truth puts us on trial
the future will be our judge

with history as our hostile witness.


Andrew Bolt is a piece of shit stuck to our collective shoe, and I'm wiping my feet tonight, taking a little solace in the realisation that, popular as he is now, ultimately history will catch up to him and all his bullshit.

The future will not look back on racism, xenophobia, homophobia, hypocrisy, and distortion of scientific data kindly. He's destined to be remembered as favourably as Senator Joseph McCarthy. Same goes for Alan Bond, Kenneth Lay, Mel Gibson, Pauline Hanson, Reverend Fred Phelps, Darryl Gates, David Duke and Bill O Reilly, to name a few.

And there is some comfort there my friends. Goodnight.
