Singing the Land
A popular person when he was a lad
All those who met him were kinda glad
Until one day it all changed for the worst
He stopped seeing anyone seemingly his bubble burst

He took to the hills to the Outback
And wouldn’t mix with...Read More

The Pinancles
40000 years of aborigine dreaming
As a hot sun beat down in daytime beaming
A sacred place where women foraged and gave birth
It was a place for water in a life balancing girth

The local Nyoongar people lived their Dreamtime
In nature’s circle forever...Read More

Aborigine Diggers
The warrior stands on one leg in the sun
And watches the British fleet drop anchor
These strange white men raise their flag
And the warrior’s land is stolen from him

Over the years they say the warrior is lost
But when Australia marched to...Read More

Les Protecteurs – Translation of Oodgeroo Noonuccal’s “The Protectors” by T. Wignesan

(Note: Oodgeroo never claimed to write poetry à la manière des poètes occidentaux; she said - without mincing words – her lines were sheer ‘propaganda’. Others thought otherwise:

Dear Teppo Gren

So from Melbourne to Perth went on a cruise;
Ended up on greatest place on earth
Where prolific people grow in Perth.

Worthless World
In the world wide and broad

We kill each of us!

Brutality become familiar member 
Kindness and emotions broke up with chamber

An Untamed Land
Sophie Boswell

 In a faraway continent, south of the equator,
Lies an untamed land
Where much of it has not been touched
By the human hand

This rugged wilderness beneath an azure sky
Lies in the Snowy Mountains
Where the purest water springs from
Underground...Read More

I AM
I am an Indian, an Aborigine, Arab,
Greek, Norde, African, Chinese..... I am
a human whose alphabet and genes tell tales
of my ancestors' journeys and cultures, as they
roamed around the world; tales about how cultures
were absorbed, or influenced others; kingdoms that reigned,

Unchained
Unchained,
free of commitment
Explained,
in her persistence

Heartache, trust issues,
her skeletons run a muck.
Physical and mental abuse,
she finally left that schmuck

Charming,
her benevolent smile
Enchanting,
and extremely versatile

***


Self-contained,
committed to money
Unrestrained,
when he tells his stories

Lone wolf in a den of solace,
independence from captivity.
Free from emotional malice,
let go...Read More

The Aborigine Boy
The aborigine boy, his poor young heart was yearning
For the young raven haired girl, a passion was quickly burning
He was to carve his first boomerang to prove he was a man
If it returned back to him, he would carry out...Read More

G'day Part 2 A poem for Don
“We’ll need to get him good and drunk, 
So then we can have our way. 
As a Sheila he’ll go in the trunk, 
Then we’ll put him on display.”

And a pair of high...Read More

The ringmaster left 
but the carnival stayed in town.
Erect, proud, empowered people
stride by living the Crayola dream.
Awash in color, characters in the screenplay,
the scene played with aborigine like dream walkers.

No surface left to its utilitarian plight,
all stroked and stoked with...Read More

Gold Fever
Gold Fever 

History will not record the bloated weight
Of this pious and bigoted race 
Or count the fat and flaccid wealth
Of religions idolatry

Those pages have been scrubbed clean
By prosperous forgivingness 
And the cruelty of established political dominion
Will not tally the...Read More

"Now when we showed up...
There it was, a professional set...
A huge Hammond B-3 Organ..

Something I'd never seen up close...
With huge spinning Leslie Speakers...
