The green bush is aflame and the blue sea is filled with ash

Tom Dobinson, Tweed Heads

Now is the summer of our discontent

Made disastrous by years of culpable denial

This parched land is scorched and ravaged by an inferno of hypocrisy and greed

Lives, livelihoods, dreams, iconic species lost, despite heroic and futile deeds.

The once merry festive season is now a time of apprehension, despair and disbelief.

The sky is red, the air is black, the green bush is aflame and the blue sea is filled with ash and burning embers.

Now because Morrison is duplicitous, conflicted and paralysed by vested interests and right-wing dogmatism

We must be resolute, rebellious and proactive to save the nation from the prophecy of climate doom.

  1. Yes… we are all living dangerously. What’s more,
    we are surrounded by living dead-heads & others
    with their wide eyes shut who parrot party lines.
    Raise the Eureka Flag.

    Yes Tom , we are a sunburnt Country !
    With lands of droughts and flooding rains!
    Its going to flood again Tom ! And more
    Bushfires Tom . Its Australia we live in Tom
    Nothing to do with blaming Governments for
    Its natural disasters.

    buggered. Admit it, Barrow.
