A quick trip inland reveals the dire state of the planet:
water shortages, slaughtered creatures left on roadsides;
and cities threatened by dust or flames.
It is a relief to get back to our stormy coastline
where forests entice the gentle rain and multicultural tourism
brings us jobs and the illusion of sustainability.
It’s way past time to seek changes for mother earth’s sake.
Alternatives to greedy vehicular transport for a start;
no more log trucks chopping up our roads and taxes.

The idea of wards is probably next best to secession.
“Option B” might put democracy back on the map
for the disenfranchised voters of southwest Victoria.

What a pity voting isn’t compulsory.
