I grieve a blighted country A land of franking credits * Of toxic sexist comments Of greedy lying twits I grieve their cyber-fake and fears I grieve the lost good name The wasted young, the working poor The howls of: shame shame shame I’d love a cooler country A land of visionary bent, Where multi-coloured leaders bold The rainbow serpent heed, And all of these both young and old No shifty sellout plan, But proud proclaim our Dreamtime theme: We’re all visitors to this land. *NOTE: Australian shareholders get a refund of the taxes paid by the company, known as “franking credits”. In the recent national election, the removal of this benefit was used as a fear tactic by the now-winning party.
