Back then

Gondwanaland I was there,
My footprints etched in time,
Blackman, happy man,
A blissful life in rhyme.

Simple life, hunter’s life,
Wide brown land ahead,
Any direction I could go,
No white man, happy bed.

Food and water a plenty,
All Eco systems alive,
Everyone a gatherer,
At the early age of five,

Coroboree tribal life,
Much better than today,
Living on the bottle.
That white man passed my way.

  3. Hey I’m using this poem for an English Assignment because I really appreciate it. (I used a poem from this website a bit oer a year ago) And I was wondering if I could get some background information on Paul Buttigieg because it would be very useful considering there’s nothing in google on him.

    Thanks in advance =]
