    When the shearing sheds are silent and the stock camps fallen quiet

    When the gidgee coals no longer glow across the outback night

    And the bush is forced to hang a sign, '. gone broke and won't be back'

    And spirits fear to find a way beyond the beaten track.



    When harvesters stand derelict upon the wind swept plains

    And brave hearts pin their hopes no more on chance of loving rains

    When a hundred outback settlements are ghost towns overnight

    When we've lost the drive and heart we had to once more see us right.



    When 'Pioneer' means a stereo and 'Digger' some backhoe

    And the 'Outback' is behind the house. there's nowhere else to go

    And 'Anzac' is a biscuit brand and probably foreign owned

    And education really means brainwashed and neatly cloned.



    When you have to bake a loaf of bread to make a decent crust

    And our heritage once enshrined in gold is crumbling to dust

    And old folk pay their camping fees on land for which they fought

    And fishing is a great escape; this is until you're caught.



    When you see our kids with yankee caps and resentment in their eyes

    And the soaring crime and hopeless hearts is no longer a surprise

    When the name of RM Williams is a yuppie clothing brand

    Not a product of our heritage that grew from off the land.



    When offering a hand makes people think you'll amputate

    And two dogs meeting in the street is what you call a 'Mate'

    When 'Political Correctness' has replaced all common sense

    When you're forced to see it their way, there's no sitting on the fence.



    Yes one day you might find yourself an outcast in this land

    Perhaps your heart will tell you then, '. I should have made a stand'

    Just go and ask the farmers that should remove all doubt

    Then join the swelling ranks who say, '. don't sell Australia out'.

    I hate those copy/paste chainletter poems. Sign of the times indeed!
    There was an especially bad one here a few years back, to the tune of "The Night Before Christmas" where Santa comes down the chimney to lecture about sending more troops to Afghanistan.
