Glistening under fake fluorescence
humming in harmony

Our lives and our time

Into the air
Toy cap gun shots
Those winter palaces unstormed
No tax offices ransacked
Where is utopia I asked
And no-one knew
They looked at me with pity
As if I still talked
To an imaginary friend

I have this burning desire
To find old mate
I want to sit
And chat with him
Under a Gum and setting sun
About what has come
And what has passed

Places we’ve been told
Along the wallaby track
Signs of danger
