Farewell young man – a poem

October 15, 2017 - 18:09 -- Admin

Farewell young man – a poem prompted by the death of a young Aboriginal man in Kalgoorlie in August 2016.

In the blacklight dark
That is my country
White men suit
Themselves to rule
Shining in their world
Of fading fools
While young boys lie
Hooded in our prisons
And boys on bikes die
From driving knife hands
No one asks why
They ‘understand’
