Gina goes to Pemberton...




Broken culture
broken heart
In the midst of life
of a people, a civilisation
Left behind to mend their fences
to tend to their sick and dying
Emergency!
Send help now.
This is our country
These are our people
Beauty and sadness
Weakness to destroy
has grown like a summer vine
And now the crosses
Displayed with pride
Scorned by some
Treated with impunity
the community
held together with bale wire
and plastic tarps in the rain
The Sun shines today
And reveals all our faults
