Hardly an eye did blink #Australia

Poem by Marc Aupiais

Hardly an eye did blink,
And hardly a voice was heard!

And another Catholic organisation left,
From selfish selflessness,
It became political-

But for its own interests-
Not those of nation or church!

And the world heard it,
As it said the words,
It hoped would pay!

Another Catholic organisation,
In Australia!

What a coup de tat,
What wonderment-

To prop up whom was falling!
To lift up, for promises,

From an unpopular people!

Unless church should aim at moral interests-
Perhaps, it should be better-
To separate-

Church charities,
And states!
