Stop the Reithkrieg

The bosses delighted
shouldn’t get excited.
They’ll always be defeated
by the workers united.

Peter Reith be assured
we’re not bored,
we’ll fight for the award
till judgement day.

We are here to stay
We’ll fight you all the way.
We’ll fight for decent pay
come what may.

You can try your best
we’ll put you to the test
you’re a nuisance
you’re a pest.

You can send
balaclavas or guavas
guard dogs or hedge hogs.
We’ll beat you in the end
you’re no friend.

Peter Reith was a minister in the Howard government driving industrial relations – Dubai trained ex-soldier for the wharfs was just one of his cappers.  1999.
