Our Hero’s

The tall poppy syndrome is alive and well.

Raising it’s ugly head with stories to tell.

They say that Brocky was a bit of a cad.

But with his passing, it’s all very sad.


And now Steve’s name is being broadcast.

As another person with a murky past.

It’s sad to think what people will say.

But nothing good, just for the pay.


Their reputations have been crushed.

You tarred them with a wide brush.

The right picture couldn’t be painted.

Because it was you that was tainted.


You’ve strip down our hero’s

For money with plenty of zero’s

But create their stories with a false lie.

Why can’t you, let our Hero’s die.
