POEM #17

Yesterday afternoon, Hamish Macdonald, sitting in for Richard Glover on 702 ABC Sydney, wanted people to call in (or send texts) with poems centred on current world events. I scribbled something down as I drove home and rang up, offering the following brief poem on Greece (Hamish got me to read it twice and said positive things)...

We need a new useful Zeus,
miracles not oracles;
in the immortal words
of Con the Fruiterer,
ah, a cuppla days.
