I don't really write poems and I don't think I'm all that good at writing, the last poem I did was in RE studies in school about religion. But I do have a short poem here for you to read if you like, it's about a clipper that was built to move things to Australia and other British colonies of the past.

The Torrens was a ship,
Of composite design.
A well built ship with hardy steel
and she sailed pretty fine

But her job was not for good
and her deeds are all but forgiven
For she took the destitute and bad
from this land that they were driven

Australia you say?
Where the Kangaroo plays?
Or is it a land we send those...
Who we could not care for anyways?

From the sweat and tears of mackems
A vessel was to take form
That committed to a voyage
Sending men and women into the storm.

Alas Australia is free
She sits now in the eye of the storm
Forever Australian she'll be
Regardless of past or norms

So I say this poem for you
My brothers and sisters a far
Our deeds are not forgotten
you are remembered wherever you are.

The Torrens was just a ship
And the deeds were just a farce
She sits at the bottom of the sea
and the crown sits on it's arse

They hold nothing on you or me
but the history should not be forgotten
Because we are sovereign and free
and the Torrens is sunk and rotten

Hope you like it, I enjoyed writing it... I think I'll try a bit more

Take it easy on me as I said I haven't wrote a poem for atleast 10 years, by the way my avatar... That is the Torrens ship

Thanks for the compliment

Here is another one I just wrote about ATS, it started well but I could add to it or change it I suppose.

oh what a mess
you might think as you walk through the door

But on further inspection
you'll need a correction
and a tin foiled hat ofcourse

It's organised mess
I can think of no less
Shamefully I must confess

with payed shills just like phage
conspiracists in rage
with another UFO thread down the pan

But it's all good
lets all join hands
we all know phage is the man

So I'll say in advance
Deny Ignorance!
then have a victory dance

Manners and decorum
are demanded in these forums
and with this I totally agree

ATS is good, ATS is bad
some say it's run by the CIA

but Whatever you do don't go astray
and never throw your tin foiled hat away

I visit each day
you might think "no way"
But I just love to read your views

So ATS don't go away
it's love and hate all the way
what else is a conspiracist to do?

As for your poem for cody,I say go for it
I'd love to read it when it's done.

Here is another I just wrote, this is kinda easy
and quite a good way to express yourself

This one is a bit deeper :

Governments left hand is the one you should watch
It's the one that's bending you over
But hey that's ok
their is bigger things at play
and his right one is on my shoulder

But freedom and rights?
screwed from you without fight?
well not this generation, we should bolder...

With words full of dread
our forefathers said
when they spoke of the tyranny they defeated

It's a shameful waste
and leaves a bitter taste
When I see the humanity deleted

And look at us now
all standing around
the dead carcass that once was our freedom

But what can I say
throw it away?
I wouldn't give you a stone for your kingdom

I'll carry this burden
but my shoulders are hurting
can you carry some freedom too?

we'll all stand together
freedom forever
and fight for something that's true

I said this is easy, but that doesn't necessarily mean they are good... But hey I'm enjoying myself here
