Advance Australia Own Poem by Dave SmithWhite

Advance Australia Own



Australians all belt out in voice,
Of strong and stirring tone.
The future is our heartfelt choice,
And for that we act alone.
No foreign kings with ancient ties,
No gray queen on her throne.
But staunch against the old world lies;
Advance Australia Own!
In thoughtful strains such seeds are sown:
Advance Australia Own!

Australians all we must admit,
A history dark and grim.
While some ignore the truth of it,
To do so is no whim.
It's deep within a restless psyche,
To do well to atone.
Address the ills that we don't like;
Advance Australia Own!
A song that grounds us in our bones:
Advance Australia Own!

I think that we should accept that we conquered Australia and no case for terra nullius.
