It’s time

It’s time we

got it right,

this stuff

between the

owners of this

land and us.

 

It’s time to

get the job done,

right now,

not just pay games

and live on talk.

 

Get it done

and have some guts,

and lift the fist,

and stand and say

that we give a shit.

 

It’s time to say

goodbye to hate

and that black

lives matter

and we want

the day.

 

It’s time we

got it right

where it matters,

where it counts:

in our hearts,

in our heads,

in our laws,

in the Parliaments

of this land.

 

In memory of Gough Whitlam
