Another of my poems promoting equality for all. Not merely 'priority groups'.

White, Anglo-Saxon, Protestant
Is what Australians once had to be,
If they wanted a well-paid job
Rather than living in misery.

But those days are now long gone
And of that, I'm truly glad,
But the fact we don't have equality
Really makes me mad.

With the fall of the WASP society
I foolish expected a better world,
But now instead of, 'Jobs for the boys'
In Australia, it's, 'Jobs for the girls.'

Equality still doesn't live here
The prejudices have been reversed,
But the Black-Lesbian Society
Isn't as bad, but many times worse.

Jesus said, 'Forgive them
For they know not what they do!'
And for the fallen Wasps
This may well have been true:

Because the Wasps were too stupid
To know what they did was evil,
But the Black-Lesbians who now rule
Knowingly are working with the devil:

And knowing this they go on
And never procrastinate,
For when it comes to mere males
All the Black-Lesbians know is hate.
