POLITICALLY CORRECT THINKING

Phil Roberts 1957 (Melbourne)



Politically correct thinking
Is brainwashed into us since birth,
‘Conform and never think a thought,’
Say the leaders, ‘To prove your worth.’

Politically correct thinking
Is undoubtedly always wrong,
But the populace follows the evil lies
Unless their wills are unusually strong.

Politically correct thinking
Is the worst possible kind of treason,
The political criminals who commit this sin
Do not seem even to need a reason.

Politically correct brainwashing
Is what we are now subjected to,
And most freely give up truth and free will
All except the very strongest few.

Politically correct cabbages
Is what our schools turn out these days,
Is there no-one left to fight for the truth?
Is it too late to be saved?
