Dog House

Dog House



Their Country called
They answered
Side by side
Heartfelt servicemen
No bravery awards
Old mate

Lest We forget

Non citizens
Good enough to die
Spilling blood on foreign soil
Losing body parts for
Peace keeping mission
Dutiful soliders

Lest We Forget

Back home
To the Lucky Country
No recognition
Nor settler blocks
Children removed
Protection Acts in place

Lest We Forget

Go on, get
Lick your wounds
Black man
Under a bush
Out of sight
No RSL for you
