On The Mistreatment Of David Hicks
David Hicks has pleaded guilty of assisting of terrorists did he have a choice?
by Francis Duggan
For being caught in the wrong place he has paid a huge price
Five years in jail in Cuba shackled to a floor
Far distant from Adelaide his southern home shore
Five years in jail without trial that seems all wrong to me
By the so called freedom loving Government of the Land of the free
For a fool hardy fellow who had not fired a shot
Five years in jail without trial seems far more than a lot
But i pity poor David he was a foolish man
For to give his support to the vile Taliban
Their oppression of women to say the least bad
For the poor of Afghanistan one has to feel sad
And as for David Hicks it would be fair to say
That he has been treated in the worst possible way.
