I am in support of freedom, and had to put this piece Together, under poetic license as means to that end' I have observed Media pressure; also some peer pressure becoming Used as if it were a law..! I have seen the who being Described as an authority, why isn't it denoted as the WHA..? Answer its because its an organisation hence who...Who was that again.? Anyway the situation has Become infected with misinformation from the very Outlets that decry misinformation..' Yes they obviously Know lots on that subject.' However surely there are People in authority who are unsettled at the role big Businesses are playing in pushing governments into Very dangerous areas, thereby undermining populace Trust, and creating a volatile environment for all All it takes to redeem the situation is for enough high Placed military to march along with their own people Who they are there to protect, and sanity will be regained Peace can only be our reward.!
I’ve unfurled the Southern Cross tonight and put it On the wall, and as I gazed the longest while.. I thought I heard the dingo’s call? It couldn’t be as all Round me were the sounds of London going down' Then I thought again of scenes that had Made my forehead frown, rows of blue Police ensued…’bout Sydneysiders Free We’re all of them of unworthy Ken? Real Dingoes one and all? Well so it seems Today; this way to be, yet Trawling deep, down way down; in my memory' I remember well the NSW country cops and City police on point duty, their white gloves And doves; amid Melbourne hub, bub and parks; the stately trees they were hard enough men Yet fairer; truer then' than this lot oh I’m in pain to see. Led by other dingoes on The prowl in a great country… where all Should ‘get a go’ I know. Every ‘Blue to Blind Freddie’ from Tassies spot up to Ayers Rock, Newcastle to Albany. They’re a devious lot, this closet mob Behind a screen of decency, they point Out ‘unclean people’ and just who Will own to dirt? Not them for some They’ll just ‘give it the gun’ so more statistics It’s bound to be ‘as on the margins of truth they flirt’ we can see that no Doubt’ they’ve come up from Monash halls or Adelaide uni And yet; they’re overawed I see' they’ve just at Europe’s beck And call, mouthing I once met a Sorbonner; mumbling Shakespeare In their sleep. They're following a mantra maybe; to prove their quality? Thinking, now watch the Aussies lock it down, I reckon they’ll have Locked the lot, each gate, each cupboard door maybe even Padlocking the locks? (Bless their cotton socks) oh they’ll not be Seen as larrakins or the world might look at them poor…! Patterson of the banjo fame, has no part of their desire, they’ve never rode The paddock long or fed an outback fire. Value Henry Lawson? You’ll find there no incent' they couldn’t stack A wall of mallee roots, these gutless bloody wonders, so Give them all the heavy boot; from Cairns right down. To Melbourne Town. Awake and face the truth, you’ve got the Will, you’ve got the groove from lawyers To publicans, so get behind your truckies That kept you on the move; in the spirit of Green dog Stevens. I hear he’s now back in the news' he made the Stand at Razorback He was a sharp one too, the country’s not colonial now it’s full of seasoned crews who Can organize with drive; run commerce reason and thrive; the Stockade is in the past, so now stand fast! Don’t subordinate your days, it’s up to you See it though and make it stay that way. Sing out to all your Cobbers, pilots, judges, cockys and police, WHO will have their (orders coming in) but are they true? If they are; then they’ll come good; and through. Close ranks round the big brown land Shut the courts, all sea and airports to Take the country in hand; remember Your roots recall your truth’s and turn off the media stew; there is Better sense listening to.. Crow on a barbed wire fence. And of those who took the jab as told? What Of those trusting ones? Don’t exclude them In any way – They’re Australia’s Daughters and Sons! ©Joe Maverick 19-9-2021

I guess you're in wa then Scott, I was in Collie And Bunbury there in the late 1970's I am still A bit in shock as I read the state of play there It's completely un-Australian what's going on Mate.' It wouldn't have been allowed to get this Far even in the eighties I reckon a Bush brigade Would have been raised, to releive Melbourne And Sydney then.' and it's all been a peer Pressure thing here in the UK I appreciate your Time here Be well be clear headed and stay strong'

I'm on the West coast of SA. Our COVID meeting was interesting to say the least, with the boss often saying that he realises we really don't have the staff for this?? But off we go, no stopping the crazy train. After living in NZ for a dozen years, the Australia I've come back to just ain't the same. Where did it all go wrong? Peace be with you brother.

I'm off to a COVID plan meeting this afternoon, in a small rural hospital with only 6 Registered Nurses on the books, and only a few more Enrolled Nurses. We currently don't have the capacity to deal with what we've got. Next we'll have a bunch of old sick Eastern State tourists here. Let the bastards go back overseas for their holidays. I'm sick of fucking overtime as it is! Apart from that Joe, I sincerely agree with your sentiment. We were once the Lucky Country, and freedom was guaranteed.

Where it went wrong was a Few billionaires decided to Run a script, using a virus that killed but only in a small Percent then they stretched that to it might kill millions' But they needed a small fact to start the tale'

Joe our world is a mess....I live in the U.S. and am horrified at the corruption and the manipulation of our government. This certainly is not the America I grew up in.....your words are powerful; we need the power to topple the evil that is consuming our civil liberties. Blessings, Paulette

Joe, new poet brother, many thanks for going to introduce yourself to me, so I raced here to read and, lo, I find Brilliance of poetry and specters of feeling and opinion. Words, we are taught, may have powerful effects on people…let us hope that continues, & not just true of the lies(due to trumpet our own son refuses the vaccine. But…a TRUE poet I am now one of your followers. Stunning love of your chosen words! Hugs, sally

Hello Sally WOW.' I never expected such a response.. You have lifted my spirit so much take care of that valuable Son you have there, and if you believe? what I now stand for And others you can see here take every opportunity to speak out.. but do be careful chose your times think ahead.. OK so there may be 100 mega rich leading this thing but surely 1000 000 very rich people Plus everyone else can stop them.'

Bloody Hell, Joe, I have children, grandchildren and yes even great ones too. And within this small circle, my historic life (and i've learned a few thing along the long road) means absolutely nothing, i knew 50 years ago, when forced at work, to my first mind controlling session, for managers where all of this was going. Every thing you write Joe, i agree with, Yes trump tried to run the US like a business, sacking those that failed the company charter. Then we have far left far right. No space

God bless you Harry, I was saddened to have to write this Piece..' I never thought I would Have to post anything like this.! On Soup and never wanted to..) But what about the children sleeping tonight they should have whatever safety we can muster.' I am far in body but my Spirit is with you there! I think This is as effective as I can be To Aussies, at this time feeble though it seems to me here and now.' If you can't lift your arms I say to all who read this lift your pens send emails Resist this oppressive agenda.'

Well it's hit me harder than I'd Expected Andrea, the thing is I've not been back for 36 years But was getting ready to go home, and that's about the worst feeling, when people are stopping you, one the quantas ceo is Irish..' telling Aussies what they must and must not do? I don't know' maybe he's English..? And the accents false Like everything else..' BTW thanks for the comment; I don't think I'll write anything for a long While now except the one I promised to do for your good self.' You know we are supposed to be enhancing the world but there is interference ad nauseum.'
