I love a timid country
A land of scare campaigns
Where mindless bogan slogans
Just overtake our brains
The stunted, short horizons
Of those who will not see
Who, presented with alternatives
Think only: me, me, me.

[apologies to Dorothea Mackellar]

    The love of field and campaigns,
    Is running in your veins.
    I know but cannot share it,
    My chide is otherwise.

    Where mindless machines,
    Just overtake the bogan lives.
    Leave stunted short-term jobs,
    For those you never see.

    Those never given alternatives,
    Can only dream of being bold:
    like thee.
