Anarchy

Anarchy

It’s the beginning of bad times
when things go so far wrong
that vigilante groups
are formed.

Which happens when people
lose faith in their local,
state and
federally elected leaders and police,
and no longer trust them
to keep order,
prevent crimes
and keep citizens safe.

When people start taking
matters into their own hands,
it is a sign of a society
on the brink of collapse.

How many out there
hear the bells of anarchy
. . . tolling !?

Dual Citizenship

“ Dual Citizenship ”

Additional problems may occur
regarding dual citizenship
political management
when for example
as some aboriginals push
through on their quest
to have their flag & law recognised
in Australian courts.

Some Followers of Islam
are hell bent
by bomb or breed
to live by their law
& custom in Australia.

And of course many other
parts of the world
Aboriginals and Muslims
who follow and abide
their law and customs
would then become
dual citizens

unable to hold
federal political office
in Australia.

Wonder how long this would last
in our wonderful lucky country?

John Taylor’s novel, “The Ute” – about $5

Countries

Countries

We have countries
In the blip of our world
In the universe who have / had
Little or no regard
For other countries’ customs / culture

These countries have demonstrated
Personal entitlement
Over;

  • borders
  • resources
  • religions

From time immemorial.

And very little has changed
Apart from a feeble,
Ongoing attempt
By a League of Nations
Headed by a well known
World identity

Bi-annually plucked
From a list of other well-knowns
To head this toothless tiger
Of a now United Nations Assembly
In enforcing humanitarian values
On planet earth

People who are equally intent
On forcing their greed for power and prosperity
Via;

  • machete,
  • machine gun and
  • guided atomic missiles

On other planet earth people.

In this flurry of misadventure,
Toe-to-toe situations
Have escalated
To full on
Emergencies.

The distasteful word War,
Has been watered down,
In an attempt to camouflage
The reality of murder
And mayhem
That exists
Amongst our many;

  • lunatic,
  • greedy,
  • feeble

leaders.

Mind’s eye attempt at management.
Which in many cases
Has proved no less
Than an ego-based race
In property development

Stakes
And baseless congratulatory speeches
Blurring public service time
In a haze of smog
Shielding the reality
Of their handing-over
(A hollow, clanging baton)
To the next ineffectual leaders
Commencement of equally-ineffective
Time in office.

Anzac Spirit

We’ve lost the Anzac spirit
That got us where we’re at
We’ve sacrificed the sacrifice.
Those never made it back.

We’ve lost the Anzac spirit
Broke the battlers cast
Replaced tradition with a reset button,
on a faceless computer mask.

They banned the use of common sense,
abolished ‘ave a go.
‘Til all is level ‘n’ all’s complete
‘n’ no one has a go.

Work Safe’s disastrous duty
of care ‘n’ pre-start meetings,
All meet there.
Shifting idly foot to foot.
Ticking off each box by rote,
each inane pre-dawn parade.

Replaced tradition with a faceless mask.
Sacrificed the battlers cast.

One-armed Bandits

There’s a copper in the gutter
taking photographs of speed.
And there’s others take advantage
of camouflage from trees.

Stripping points and dollars
from passers passing by.
One armed bandit industry.
Preying on the need to drive.

Numbers are increasing
cross the length and breadth,
of Australia’s roadways,
coppers put ’em to the test.

Checking registration,
speed and alcoholic breaths
one armed bandit industry
Financed by the fines.

If you like my poems . . .

Consider buyin’ my yarn “The Ute”
