Scott Morrison - Poem by Francis Duggan

Scott Morrison is supposed to believe in freedom and justice and democracy
The Minister for Immigration elected by the majority
Of his Constituency who with his views agree
In every democracy the majority rule is how it seems to be

Scott Morrison may have his many admirers but it does seem to me
That he does not believe in the rights of any asylum seeking refugee
Who from religious or cultural persecution their homelands do flee
To seek refuge in Australia and of oppression live free

He orders his navy to either turn back the boats or send them from Australia to Islands far away
To prison camps for a long and indefinite stay
As if in seeking freedom from persecution they were committing a crime
For wanting a better and safer life serving long prison time

Scott Morrison will never be nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize
If he does this would be a huge Worldwide surprise
Though his many loyal supporters think he is doing okay
By their loyalties you make out of them what you may.
