Their Right To A Fair Go - Poem by Francis Duggan

In Australia for political gain politicians politicize boat refugees
People who arrive in boats of people smugglers from Lands overseas
Without documentation or any form of identity to show
Every day the numbers of the misplaced and the Stateles does grow
Though with what I say many may well disagree
To politicize refugees does seem all wrong to me
But this is twenty ten another Federal Election year
And more about asylum seekers from politicians we do hear
With political point scoring over the plight of the misplaced I could never agree
Elections should not be fought on Stateless people's misery
The fair go to all to everyone ought to apply
And their right to a fair go to none we ought to deny
And 'tis sad to think that the Stateless from a distant shore
In Australia are becoming an Election issue once more.
