Send Barnaby to Indonesia
It is a pity that Barnaby Joyce, a man of tact, diplomacy, nuance and subtlety, isn’t going to Indonesia to fix things up. I know I am disappointed that Barnaby is missing out on this great opportunity, and I am sure the Indonesians feel the same way. [Sarcasm alert.] (0)

The barbed wire deepens – a poem

The barbed wire deepens
Twisting the torn,
Skin born of other things,
Of fear, 0Of hate,
Abuse mailed in bullets,
While geese step their way
Round the bodies
Of our living, and their dead
 
The night darkens day,
Infiltrates the future
Where spies gather us
For their uses
Sluices on the waterway
Of life
No fish, no fishing towns
No people with rods around
 
Just the silence of the flow
Where we depart
And go another way
Up creek, up river
Damn quiet
All quiet
No fronts Western or elsewhere
To ease the care of war
 
What for?
The society of barbarians
Is not us
But are we them?
Our bullets silent in their guns
Our comments built on dead fun
No help but more
Of their war,
War and war
Against the other
Against us
 
Enough! End this sickness
Destroy their prison
Their walls
Reclaim the light
Today, tonight, together
