australian mateship

Below in the pdf file is a series of 'social comment' concrete poems in the same style as the use by date and american war boogie woogie poems. Make of them what you will. However, the poems are devised in response to the sanitized historical record of pioneer frontier life in Australia which came at such a ruthless cost to the original population. Consider the many massacres, atrocities, displacement from land etc. The Myall Lake Massacre was one major source for these poems. Although there has been a substanitial effort to right the public record there is still further need to look at this horrifying past; to keep raising its profile in mainstream consciousness so as to be able to continue to adopt a more mature/critical/progressive attitude to future black-white relations.
