Referendum Day

Referendum day


Its true people have short memories

Those people who conveniently forget

the generation of those who sacrificed

so much for their children’s rights

that well-worn verse of remembering

has been tossed to one side

but will be dragged out again

by the self-proclaimed patriot

of that there is little doubt

mouthed over and over again

by the liars and scoundrels

wrapping themselves in the flag

as if it’s a kind of comfort blanket.

But we need to be aware today

the hate hounds have been let loose

and we’ll need to protect our own.
