It is poetry cast in modern themes of our age, situations and characters
sampled over Australia, The Med, Africa and US.
It deals with topics modern poets shy away from, it is about life here and now, it could not get more contemporary nor more relevent.
It is above all poetry of the common man and an anti-war crusade
and aghast at the permissive ways of the Big Money..
Along the way reader may also indulge in some comical scenes.
And last if not least, it should hopefully encourage younger poets
to shake off restricting shackles of modern poetry, and engage
in issues of the day that matter, as poets of earlier times did so well.
Rudyard Kipling just to mention one; a giant figure in English poetry
fallen out of favour, or the Antepodean 'bush poets' Banjo Paterson
and Henry Lawson both of whom describe their time better than
most historians could.
