True, not quite yet a Labor loss,
But surely already victory
For all that sloganeering dross
Pushing back our tide of history
To ignorance and fear of danger
Which centuries past had men build moats.
Slogans blind to ‘Christ, the stranger’
Shouted loud, “We will stop the boats!”
As the tally room accounting
Provides time for contemplation
Many feel grief and a mounting
Anxiety for our young nation
Jane August 22, 2010 Patricia, excellent pome. again.
