Is This The Latest Message From Oz To Boat People?

We know your stories one and all,
Widow, orphan, soldier amputee.
And how you strove to reach landfall
Here beyond the Arafura Sea.
We know that if you came by boat
People smugglers charged a hefty fee.
Well,  now you can get a lower rate,
With journey’s end before the Timor Sea.
This lessening of your suffering
Comes courtesy of the ALP,
Anxious to find a buffering
Between Oz and the surrounding sea.
You who are here to seek refuge
Must understand  it’s already sanctuary
For people whose anxiety is huge,
Girt as Australia is by sea.
