My Heroes Are Elsewhere

I've never been a soldier or fought in war and I've been called a coward
Yet I would not bow to Australia's Queen or salute Johnny Howard
And if George W Bush or Tony Blair were driven down my street I would look the other way
Do not tell me who I should respect that is for me to say.

Though in fairness to Elizabeth of her it can be said
That she is not in any way responsible for the thousands of war dead
And though the leaders of the so called Coalition of the willing to their God in church pray
Old Moses Fifth Commandment they see fit to disobey

John Howard has been re-elected Prime Minister of Australia but for that he can't thank me
I cannot see the good in him that many seem to see
The one who send young Aussies to war in Iraq and demonize refugees
Poor Stateless people who only seek a better life from war torn Lands beyond the seas.

In his Election victory speech on the t v of one of his statements I took note
He said I will even represent the people who for me who did not vote
But how can he represent those who to him can't relate
We will leave him to his karma since his karma for him wait.

I would not bow to Elizabeth or salute Johnny Howard
Though as Australia's Prime Minister he has been re-empowered
Nor I would not applaud George W Bush or Mr Tony Blair
These people are not my heroes my heroes are elsewhere

My Heroes Or Heroines

My heroes or heroines aggression they never do show
For their acts of kindness them we only know
For to help others out they go out of their way
They are the unsung of the World of today
My heroes or heroines not legends of sports or football
The champions of unselfishness are those i most love to recall
They work for the poor in poor lands far away
The unsung heroes or heroines of the World of today
One of my unsung heroines she lives next door
For the poor of the Locality she has done more
Than anyone i know of she is kind of heart
Selfishness in her life does not play any part
My true heroes or heroines are caring and kind
And better than them one could not wish to find.

My Heroes Or Heroines Do Good Deeds Every Day

The general public the legends create
The heroes or heroines we do celebrate
And if you wish to know what constitutes a hero or heroine ask someone other than me
For we all look at life one might say differently.

My heroes by the majority remain as unsung
And my heroes can be ageing, middle aged or young
My heroes or heroines not known in renown
They never do become the toast of the Town.

My heroes or heroines do good deeds every day
For to help others out they go out of their way
They do not do it for ego or honour or pay
Good karma awaits them one can only say.

My heroes or heroines of themselves never boast
And to them others never do drink a toast
For their acts of kindness they only are known
One might say they are in a class of their own.

My Indian Neighbours

The man next door is one I do often see
He has a dark haired wife and a dark haired daughter of three
As neighbours we do live in harmony
Though they speak in a different tongue to me
Their Homeplaces as is mine from here are far away
He is from New Delhi and she is from Bombay
They do speak English though not very good
And my accent by them not easily understood
But they have the warmth of India in their hello smile
So lovely down to earth and free of guile
With raven hair and skin of chestnut brown
The nicest people in our side of the town
I see them often at least once a day
And our common bond is we are from far away.
