Aboriginal Death

My love for the land means little

When

Concrete and bitumen burn my feet

My presence does nought for my tribal name

I’m living and drinking the devils brew

On a Whiteman’s street

I cannot hunt in car parks or reserves

The bush tucker has gone

I cannot show stealth or throw spears

I am lost forever ‘

As

A Fringe Dweller
