Why can’t Labor get some backbone

Why can’t Labor get some backbone
Why can’t labor stand alone
Why can’t Labor stand up for this land
Why can’t they have a platform grand
Why can’t we see them at our side
Why do they find the need to hide
Why not stand and face reality
Why can’t they stand beside us
so Australia can be free

Stand up, stand up, be counted
you leaders of the Left
Stand up, stand up, be counted
your policies bereft
Stand up, stand up, be counted
we need you at the fore
Stand up, stand up, be counted
like you have done before
Stand up, stand up, be counted
your leaders of the past
Stand up, stand up, be counted
blanch at your shadow cast

This land now needs a leader
with the guts to stand up tall
This land now needs a leader
or we will all face a fall
This land now needs a leader
who can lead like none before
This land now needs a leader
because we can’t take much more
This land now needs a leader
to save us from our plight
This land now needs a leader
who’ll stand with us and fight

About a foolhardy florilegium

Nullius addictus iurare in verba magistri, quo me cumque rapit tempestas, deferor hospes.
