Singing White Australia By Oodgeroo Noonuccal
White Australia by Oodgeroo Noonuccal
by Dr Ian Inkster
From her collection: The Dawn Is At Hand
Since God's good world began, Not God but godless man
Made barrier and ban, And reared each frontier wall.
Brothers, when shall we see Selfless democracy?
Life is for liberty, And earth was made for all.
Let little Kiplings rant, Narrow and arrogant,
Their chauvinistic cant That white is nobler birth.
The best of every race Should here find welcome place;
The colour of his face Is no man's test of worth.
