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 lifeboat – a poem

I am become a tablet
A pill to kill the enemy within
Out damn spot rages nightly
And every day
Where hope abandons hope
And grows again
A gain that walks better today
But not so well tomorrow
Tottering between pain and moving
 
Out damn sorrow and take with you
The filth that spews its way
Inside
Be gone, the tablet chants
And my mind enjoins the song
Right, wrong, not long
But oh so long
That is the point
 
Normality returns
I see its image ahead
Is that mirage, or miracle?
A way to win, to kill your own
My skin, my soul
I am become whole
Again
Without that end
At least until my time
Not early but in fullness
 
Your sweet caress fulfills
The gentle hand it guides
And with your tea, I glide
Not down but up
To the fresh air
And mountain walks
Not Sisyphus
But talks of better things
Amid the clean
 
I am clean
Or will be, soon enough
In this I cling
To the lifeboat of life
A pill a day
With you
Not the only way
The best
