about

Australia's detention policy regarding refugees is a national disgrace, with two self-immolations in one week (one fatal) in a detention centre on Nauru. The Minister currently responsible is Peter Dutton, an ex police officer - who continues the shamefully cruel approach of the previous minister, Scott Morrison towards refugees.

There's not a lot I can do personally about this situation except write a song.
This is for P.D.

"Judgement Day" refers in the first instance to the upcoming national election (although the other main political party appears to have the same attitude to refugee detention), but also to the biblical judgement day of course. Interestingly, these politicians profess to having strong christian beliefs - amazing!

It's a slow bluesy kind of song with obtuse words, but I think you'll get the meaning.

lyrics

Judgement Day
©2016 Neil Porter

Big fella’s got a good view
Waiting for the judgement day
You know he’s gonna see you
Waiting for the judgement day
On the judgement day
Yeah there’s a judgement day
Big guy blue sky pigs fly
Gonna be a judgement day

Talk back, brain hack, back track
You take my breath away
I wouldn’t want to be you
Waiting at the pearly gates some day
On the judgement day
Yeah there’s a judgement day
Big guy blue sky pigs fly
Gonna be a judgement day

Break

SOLO

Stop boats, blue notes, get votes
You locked them all away
No voice, no hope, no choice
You took their lives away
On the judgement day
Yeah there’s a judgement day
Big guy blue sky pigs fly
Gonna be a judgement day

Break

Hard as steel and cold as ice
You’ll never get to paradise
I really hope you get what’s coming
On the judgement day
On the judgement day
Yeah there’s a judgement day
Big guy blue sky karma’s gonna get ya
On the judgement day

There’s gonna be a judgement day
