Maintaining Rage

Malcom Fraser –
Once you were
“Kerr’s cur”
And still are so for me,
Notorious
In Australian history
For destroying
Our democracy.
Softer now and
Old and grey,
Elder statesman,
All that evil
Gone away?
Still you represent
For me
The worst
By which
Society is cursed –
Patriarchy,
Patronage,
Benovolence
Of a by-gone age,
Once denier of
My suffrage.
Many have forgot
Those things.
I have not.
Even Gough may
Have forgiven you.
Again I say
That I have not.

Ad Astra,      13/11/10,      What a fine addition to TT’s piece you have penned – simple but powerful. Them’s fighting words.

Lyn,       13/11/10,   Hi Patricia WA,  You little Poppy Girl, you!   You didn’t tell us, and I have just found your very lovely story over at “Cafe Whispers”,  most enjoyable, beautiful, story……  “From Fremantle Where the Poppies Grow.”
