The sky is blue, the sun is hot,
Two redheads wait in a shady spot,
In front of them a table stands,
A trusty, stable Bunnings brand.
To a pole and a fence signs are taped,
The content of which make people gape,
'What's this about?' a person asks,
'A stupid legislation has just been passed.'
'Under this law, if you smack your child,
(They don't care if his behavior's wild),
Into your house civil servants will come,
Beating upon their proverbial drum.
'“So you smack your child,' is what they'll say,
We're sorry, we must take your child away,
Because, (and we're certain that you'll agree)
For your child, State care is a necessity.”
And that's exactly what they'll do,
Your child will enter a State run zoo,
If you dare to use your parental right,
Your child will be in a miserable plight.
So help us today, and sign the petition,
Make an end to Sue Bradford's ambition,
If you don't do it now it might be too late,
Please save our kids from a horrible fate.
