Paul Buttigieg Poems

Blacks can never love whites
Whites poisoned our hearts
And
Our children
...

I sent a couple over Japan
Just to show them that I'm the man
Kim Jong Un with a nuclear plan
I'll kill all westerners just because I can
...

I’m black
I have no issue with that
You’re white
I have no issue with that
...

Someone
Turns out the last light
A Blackout
And
...

He told me about the war
Amongst themselves their own fellas
And the grog the jails the police
He did not want to talk about the women
...

You did not get to meet Arnold,
My wonderful green tree frog,
Befriended him in Queensland I did,
When we shared a sodden log.
...

Jump stones
Dodge bending fronds
Scented flower stems
Like magic wands
...

8.

Seventy two virgins waiting
For a dead man

Tragic
...

I turned sixty today
Almost
Without permission
Whilst my love left so early
...

Love be the food
Slip the breach of dissention
An idiot a fool to wonder
Of any other intention
...

Can we start again Mr Cook?
Can we change the purpose of your visit?
From
Ownership of our land
...

Riches do not enter my mind
Happiness is a thing of will
Love is take what you can get
And
...

Fifty years and getting on,
Emotions in head and heart,
I’m closer to the end of my life,
Than I am to the start.
...

Sad days
Nothing changes in the dust and heat
The winter cold
The dirty clothes on street side camps
...

The heartaches are stronger again my girl
As that day nears
As I relive all my fears
Of
...

Tomorrow will not be my care
For
I'll be gone
Go forward in haste without me friends
...

What’s this thing called life
In Australia
When
Someone wants to kill us
...

How blind you are
That you think death is a given
That murder is acceptable
That life is a throwaway
...

It’s one for the end of the day
Two for the fact I had one
Three for the sake of enjoying one and two
Four for the relaxed state
...

Fringe dweller no Christmas or New Year
That’s white fella stuff
So
Where do I go now
...

The Best Poem Of Paul Buttigieg

Black Prejudice

Blacks can never love whites
Whites poisoned our hearts
And
Our children

Black childrens dreams shattered
By white greed

Bent minds and stolen children
Sexual abuse and slavery back then

We struggle with reality
Who are we?
We have no idea where we will call home next
And
With whom

Our pride is diminished by your white hatred

Where is our community of living?
Where is our death place?

Our Elders are beside themselves
And can only sell land for mining
Last power left for a warrior
Of
Gondwana

Sell the land and sell out
Sell out our black arses
For white wealth

We are unemployable in the mainstream
It seems

Where can we talk freely?
Where can we walk freely?
And
With whom

Who will listen to a black voice?
anymore

Everyone knows white Australia
Hates
Those that are different
Those that dare to claim their own land
After proving forty thousand years of title

Those that stand up with a black face
Are knocked down
Appeased only with words like sorry
Sorry for what white fella?
That your genocide is working?
