THE GESTAPO

Phil Roberts 1957 (Melbourne)



Wearing starched white uniforms
The Gestapo haunts this wicked land,
It once was called, "The Lucky Country"
But now evil is in command.

Goose-stepping upon democracy
They have no medals on the uniforms,
But use lies and innuendo
To make us all conform.

'The Gestapo is your friend!'
That's what the propaganda says,
And yet they act like enemies
Who rob good men of their pay.

Fashion-model tall and thin
Gestapo women cruelly rule,
Stopping justice in its tracks
Making Australia act like fools.

"Jobs for women!" is their cry
But they mean, 'No jobs for men!'
Having fought for women's rights
Men are fighting for rights again.

'The Gestapo's here to help you!'
Is their most evil lie,
'What are you doing to promote women?'
Is their most frequent battle cry.

But equality has long been won
Thanks to men fighting for women,
So now men are the beaten down
Why won't women fight for men?
