Australian Government. Tell Oil Companies GTFO Our Great Australian Bight


We've messed up the Great Barrier Reef

Now what other spot can we plunder?

Come in eco-criminals and sink your oil wells

Welcome to Australia Down Under


Our Government has smart politicians

Make the right decisions, never blunder

85% fish species found no-where else in the world

Welcome to Australia Down Under


Make Australia Less Great Again is their motto

A policy full of promise and wonder

Promoted everywhere as the MALGA acronym

Welcome to Australia Down Under

Yes Dorothy. Big business have governments in their pocket. They provide big money.

Governments all over the world are ignoring the stark warnings held within poems and videos like these.

Why? dare I suggest that they (Governments) are not in control -business is,
and dareI I suggest that, Trump like, some members of 'Government' have a lot to gain.

Or am I just cynically spreading 'fake news'

Been down there a couple of times Don. Don’t let them touch it! One of the most inspiring places I’ve ever been to. If anyone can piss the Government off a poet can. Go for it!!

Well said. If the planet were left to the devices of the corporate world we would be in a perpetual desert. More governments should emulate the Australian decision.
Good poem. Topical.
