Jerry Behr Number 2
Born in Amsterdam Netherlands and migrated to Australia as a kid in 1956.
Due to censorship problems I have created a blog spot at.
I had an ordinary education but I had a talkative mind. In my early fifties I started to learn about computers and word processing and that opened a whole new world for me.

Jerry Behr Number 2 Poems
Moving house is such the pits; all the old certainties that were there forever all to be packed up in boxes.Views out of most windows I look through, especially since the next door neighbour’s house was burnt to the ground.
A Letter To The Poet
Dear poet as a member of Poem Hunter I’ve really scrutinized the ins and out, the pros and cons of the web site. I started to down load my poetry on Poem Hunter since September 2009. One advantage of this site it records the “hits”
A Christian's Poem
In the Christian faith in eternity one gets to keep oneself. For where anyone goes he is always going to be himself. It is a powerful question to ask about oneself who he is, does he mind. Self judgment is there, there's the pointing of the finger and fault to find.
The Dance Of Life
An exuberance of life is to dance once more the dance of life With your partner by your side. To once again see the sunrise and hear the morning's outside chorus. Feel the days vibrancy, the clattering of life during the morning's rise.
Cotton wool clouds continents shifting forces tearing them apart.©
For untold millions of years plants of the world have been making oxygen so that all life can live on planet Earth. Oxygen does not come from evaporation of oceans nor from water vapour; oxygen only come
Centrelink And The Dole
In Australia’s twenty first century today, it is far removed from old Henry Lawson’s time of the last century. Lawson’s day of horses, sheep and cattle stations, at the back of Bourke, seems hardly applicable in this century. The old bush telegraph, seems now an old cliché, hardly ever used, nothing more than a cenotaph.The camaraderie and mateship, known in Lawson’s day, are now in amongst the dole queues of Centrelink offices, strewn across the country side.The government has redesigned and reconfigured the dole office, with the latest Office decor, into a mixture, of a luxury hotel lobby and a Star Trek Ship. The unemployed, enter a whirring sounding office, for their welfare trip. The humming, whirring sounds, comes from all the computers onboard.
A few years back I started to learn about computers and word processing which opened up a whole new world for me.The computer allowed me to rearrange sentences and words where ever I liked and learned how to write my own poetry book.
Love Is Blind
They say love is blind. But I don’t think so to be kind. I think love is more an understanding of the beloved faults and not grandstanding.
At night it becomes more obvious, someone then can see the ant trails. One trail starts on the M5, a ribbon of steel of ants, trucks nose to tail. Bedecked with Christmas lights, eighteen wheelers carrying shipping containers.
The Green Room
Dear Mr. Joe Blow, the reason why I'm so interested in Aussie politics is because I regard the "Green Room" as the epitome of freedom and democracy.Question Time in the House of Representatives with it's green carpet makes me glad. Questions can be asked whether good or bad.
Yak- a- back- smart- back- talk- a- back- yak. I absolutely hate it. People with status power of position the only thing they have to do is brow beat,
Blue Skies Of Australia
During the summer months here in Australia every day for weeks and weeks there was nothing but overcast skies and high humidity it drove me nuts. Now Australia is in the winter months and in mid May.
Throughout history there have always been conquerors that would like to rule the whole world, own it, and do what they like with it. Be Lord and master over all people, their own race superior to anybody else’s, all other people are inferior to their own kind.

Moving house is such the pits; all the old certainties that
were there forever all to be packed up in boxes.Views out
of most windows I look through, especially since the next
door neighbour’s house was burnt to the ground.
His house bulldozed out of the way revealing panoramic views; all to be lost. It didn't help that the old lady two houses
down also left; My house is now a prime target for the
Department Of Housing redevelopment plans.
I have lived here for the past 10 years the Department Of Housing says move on please; making me a wandering nomad ...
