Aussie Immigration

Feb 2002

The Australians treat asylum seekers
To a lengthy spell in jail,
Which really doesn't go down too well
'Cos there's no such thing as bail.

As more and more arrive each day
It's getting packed inside,
So much so, there are hunger strikes
And attempted suicides.

Now those who fight for human rights
Say Australians abuse them
And that they should do what the English do:
Let everyone in - then lose them.
