father father quite contrary

father father quite contrary 
how does your colonised garden grow
with sweet blood and bones
and all hidden graves in a row
and all hidden graves in a row

father father quite contrary
how does your cities wallet grow
by others blood,sweat and tears
i read you reap what you sow
i read you reap what you sow

father father quite contrary
how does your congregation grow
why with corporate backed syrupy lies
and spin doctors whose halos don't glow
and spin doctors whose halos don't glow

father father quite contrary
how will your hollow grounds grow
now that the stolen babies can go home
and now on whose rock will you mount your scarecrow
and now on whose rock will you mount your scarecrow

  1. great advice .i won’t ,my ancestors have very dirty hands ,they think they are clean ,my hands are not ,for i have shaken their hands ,for that is what a child is taught to do ,to be polite .but i am the end of the line. πŸ™‚.
