Not my king
Not my government
not my establishment.
I resent you all
who can stand tall
and not be beaten
or arrested in protests
who can stand tall?
when people are so restless?
who can stress less
when all around suffer
where is the buffer
for the cost of living
where is freedom of speech
replaced by law and order unforgiving
We may all curse and cuss under our breath
no freedom to protest cause we might cause a nuisance
law and order just an excuse
to beat down on us through and through
when we just accept
that this law and order just crept into view
grew out of our fears through and through
they’ll come for us and they’ll come for you
they’ll lock up our children too in this state wide prison.
No money for services or the epidemics of mental illnesses
as they cause us will full distress
and keep the peace through an iron fist
like the fascists we were told to hate and malign
written underneath law and order wins
fists of the police hit our chins
meanwhile the prime minister grins
as his profits hit the roof
the truth is lost under parliaments roof.
