I wrote this poem back in 1996…When i wrote it i was young and was blockading down in Goolengook, down in east gippsland in victoria…It’s how i felt at the time when Norths ltd and other multinationals were destroying the old growth forest…We had many months of slowing the loggers down and i hadn’t seen civilisation in many months…a long tome…The forest Goolengook is now mainly gone except for a small section that was made in to a monatorium…Looking back at this Goolengook campaign reminds me of the other multinational crimes that are going on in the world now…
Goddess…tribute to Goolengook!
Since time begun they destroyed our heritage,
They took our wives, daughters, sons and men,
They even took our trees and our land,
They moulded the land into there evil selves,
Dry and empty, dry and empty, dry and empty.
Sadness dwells with and i feel it,
To kill is to become a killer,
And they kill everything i hold true,
So to destroy them i must do as them.
Destroy there ways, there tools,
To become crazy like the warrior,
And use my tools like the darkness.
The time is nigh and no one else cares,
Bless my soul, bless my soul.
Love the earth and she shall care,
Because dying for her is an honour,
And she shall guide my plan to bare.
Never again, never again,
Be a dead man walking amongst dead….
