Phil Roberts 1957 (Melbourne)

Deviated thinking
By degenerate politicians,
Who wish to build a ‘perfect’ world
With only one thing missing:

Democracy is the one thing
That the politicians don’t rate high,
If they can get the people to think ‘right’
They’ll gladly allow democracy to die.

Political correctness is the cornerstone
Of their ‘healthy’ ordered society,
And if they can achieve uniform thinking
Then they don’t need democracy.

Deviated teachers too
Corrupt the mind of kids from kindergarten,
Raising, living, unthinking computers
Instead of raising women and men.

Deviated federal politicians
Orchestrate a system of national mind control,
When from kinda onward we quickly learn
‘Never question a lie that you’re told!’
