These are new poems inspired by ANZAC day 25/4/13. Our remembrance day. They are irreverent statements about the stupidity and horrors of war, written in Australian vernacular.

Poetry and prose that are either terribly lovable and understanding of the human psyche, or are so weak in a thought process that you may feel that your time has been wasted. Either way, you have an opinion of the writing by the end of it.
