My father fled Russia from Stalin’s awesome rein
Served in the rotten war against Germanys evil strain
Then served with the British who sent them over here
Free country to a land without hatred & awesome fear
Free speech & equal rights supposed to be for every one
Multicultural nation that too will soon will be overrun
Secret Cuntry where those convicts in control still rule
Original owners outcasted and mistreated by the cruel
Greedy property developers control all six rotten states
They are the ones erecting those frightening steel gates
Bush week brings a new trend, police state is now here
Blind leading the blind manipulating all televisions fear
APEC is the global leader banning worldwide poverty
Homeless and poor are prime targets, rich take all property
America invented such, all nations globally follow suite
Let em rot & die in the streets while rich serve the boot
Wicked Charities cutting costs, serving rotten stale food
Evil is the government protecting that makes it utter crude
How APEC stamps out poverty; in this Christian way?
Homeless and the poor are excluded world wide today
Each nation is just as guilty eventually will have to pay
Worst act of terrorism, thousands will be killed this way

About this poem

Opec Bush Week killed free speech in Australia & made down Under a police state so political protesters are banned. Some of my social justice articles I write here is considered by the state as an act of terror the city of Sydney & the Herald say Im dangerous & the political works I write are illegal to perform in Sydney Australia. Australia Day 2006 I performed my last street poetry at Circular Quay and was Banned by the city of Sydney altogether. I took them for discrimination & won back my music performance rights but art on easel & street poetry is not at all allowed so after that, not many performances was available to me unless I am a celebrity. Sydney was imprisoned in cages during Bushweek, citizens banned from their rubbish show so the event changed our lives completely under a police state. Any articles anti government is an act of terror with the new anti terror laws in place. I got awfully sick 2011 from my smoking raw sewerage, & dining on garbage fumes from my dilapidated department of housing Redfen hovel was killing me so I sued the state with Redfern Legal & moved out to Blacktown. I recovered slightly, use medication to stay alive and have respirative illnessness from my Redfern hovel mould, cockroach infested DOH poo house. Im not allowed to speak about this to anyone but didnt mention not to write & express about. what makes words minling sensational the art of expression, this injustice is killing thousands of inner city resident living in hovels just like mine, Rich bastards in power allowed to kill us legally no one can trust the press, they support redevelopment plots to evict us all out even kill us by severe neglect where no rich folks cares less and its all real live deadly shit down under no one will listen!.
