November first two thousand nineteen
November first two thousand nineteen...
abuzz with Autumnal thrum

Divine myriad biota amidst
heavenly Lily of the valley

Edenic heavenly terra

Gaia's quintessential orchestration
resplendent sensational treat
natural splendour regaling,

Its Australia Day
It’s Australia’s day
We all cheer and say
A barbecue with lamb and beer
Is the plan we adhere

But now some exclaim
It’s a day full of blame
For we invaded their country 
Aborigines owned it you see 

For us it was a day

Of rice to fill his 'small' debt.

Critterary Verses: How the Kangaroo Got Its Name
When Australia was still the "land down under",
And British folks first lit upon its shores,
They found nearly naked people there
And stared at them in wonder,
As well as dingoes, emus, wallabies, and more.
One animal they deemed most fascinating
Because it jumped so...Read More

Plenty of sleep, no more tv, the wars in the Middle East

The Lost Trooper
He rode the endless desert
As the days ran together in it

At first it was what he needed
But being alone finally exceeded

What he felt being the only law
In the Australian desert cut to the craw

He visited the homesteads occasionally 
And saw...Read More

Ghetto Good To Go

I’m not your average ghetto schmo,
I’m better than that
Much sharper than those dull D.C. politicos,

Americans, Algerians, Australian aborigines,
Corrupt leaders of the world involved in illegal activities.
Bloodthirsty bullies brazenly bombing bystanders,
Militaries full of corrupt army commanders.

Third world countries deprived of equal opportunities.
Doctors, dentists, drugs, disability and depression,
An angry generation full...Read More

Forgotten Tribes
Australia the lucky country but not for all,
It's time to tell a tale that's not so tall.

Most people know the country has a black history.

Tragedy of Intelligent man
Sandy nations of Arabia
bushes of Tropical Congo
rocky lands of Afghanistan
the dry soils of Somalia

bush land of Karamoja*
forestland of Colombia
ragged dress of ozone layer
swampland of South Sudan
homeland of Aborigines
All dance to rhythm of same music
tragedy of intelligent man!

The 5 Eyes Clic
The 5 Eyes Clic
Written By: D. Collins 4/13/17

Every time I hear it; it gives me pause.
How these five nations could even have the balls?
Australia and New Zealand belonged to Aborigines.
Canada and the U.S. brought Indians to their knees.

Bait and Switch
The devil done put a new face
on an old sales technique
It's brash, it's bold
It's tricky sweet
But it tastes sour, this maggot treat
He swapped the fresh for the spoiled meat
Had to bait the trap good,
hide the kill switch under the hood

Full of courage, winter, 
geese fly north. The car
almost wouldn't start.

Drive along the Mohawk
flood plain. Cattails, grasses, 
no doubt ash and elm.

Restful tans and browns.
Flat, low, but still city.
Arrive at the interview.

Corner of State and Clinton,
luminous blue corporate logo

Preying on amiable,zealous souls' innocence

Among aborigines and by pugnacious animosity abide.
