An Aboriginal Kid

He’s just a black kid
In the middle of any Australian town
No livelihood

Put him down

He walks and walks
To the other side
The dark side of town
No whites there

Put him down

He sleeps well
Aided by alcohol
Yet cries out to be sober
Noticed even

He’s just another black kid
We forgot
He’s an aboriginal kid
