As we woodchip our way towards a forest policy,
setting up bilby abattoirs in Pitjantjatjara country,
our journalists inquire of highly paid bankers
whether we should put up interest rates
in order to halt the rise in employment,
whilst policemen impersonate journalists
so that they might arrest a skyrail protester
who sat in a tree for 200 days.
Perhaps the unemployed should
to rob Australia blind.
Environmentalists should dress up as foresters
and treat politicians
as if they were trees.
