Land rights have meant nothing to the Indigenous until now

Australia has relented

at last the Indigenous can
take back what had been bequeathed

to them by History  each man

and women suffered for the


Colonialism stole their land

and the people tended to ignore

History has marched on through

Politics and the Law


but now we hear the

Eastern Kuku Yalanji have said

after four long years of talking

suddenly it has led

to the government conceding

that the land is rightly ours

and therefore agree to hand it back

the godly crowd allows

these National Parks and forests

to be ascribed again

to our tribes and  to our people

So it has not  been all in vain

our culture and  tradition

remember they thought before

that really we were savages

they may not have been sure

but still they stole our precious  things

our heritage, our soul All Opportunistic   arguments

for them to keep control
as truth was overhauled

for four years they have been talking

their throats were tired and sore

A fifty thousand year History

giving them what for

traditions and true  kudos

Theirs  for evermore
