    Hi David, Just wondering if you have any objections if I use your poem 'Simpson and His Donkey' as part of an ANZAC service.

Song: Mata Hari

The firing squad was ready,
to shoot you Mata Hari.
The sun had barely
kissed the morning sky.
To a courtyard, dank and muddy,
they brought you Mata Hari.
A famed exotic beauty was to die.
