With Australian Domestic Violence at breaking point,
It was a stroke of genius to appoint,
Rosie Batty the 2015 Australian of the year.
So many women shed a tear.
Not just women, but their children and families too
In the hope that Rosie’s story and campaigning can break through.
Rosie came to Adelaide this morning
Domestic Violence she was scorning
at the white ribbon breakfast.
Premier Jay Weatherill puts forward a prospectus
familiar with the appalling statistics
He announces new logistics
For women to access the criminal records of their partners
to see if they are hiding any potential darkness.
The world needs people to speak out and make change
Just like Rosie Batty has done at close range.
