A poet in Australia

Action engenders thought of ennui
precarious balance
skill
artful use of a tool
probability over chance
if not success
well-fought failure,
poverty not in material means
a popular theme

    May privation succumb to prosperity and
    celebration by wisely considering fame
    and its suspect implications.
    Rescuing a poet from certain lethargy
    and aching consternation.
    Bowing as a supple poppy
    Humble before a grateful
    Aussie nation
    Safe beneath glistening
    Scythes constant razor edge
    And egalitarian indignation.
