Best Poem of Paul Buttigieg

I Am An Aboriginal

I’m black
I have no issue with that
You’re white
I have no issue with that
You are different
I understand that

I am very different
Not sure who understands that
Most
White Australians do not

To them I am a burden
A Bludger just a blackfella
A bung
An Abo

What I really am is proud

Your white prejudice
Will never allow you to be the same
