Do I Still Call Australia, H...?

Rating: 4.0
To ' I Still Call Australia, Home' by Peter Allen

-

I've travelled the skyways for thousands of miles,
to see in the distance this bright jewelled isle.
I turn my head now, where once I would smile...
Can I still call Australia, home?

The land is despoiled with the rising in salt.
The censors return to mistrust the adult.

Home is where the hearth is... this feels like I'm gathered round the campfire with friends.

This is great. I think the sort of ambiguity of the line 'calling Australia home' having travelled with Quatas, thousands of mile is a great pun. Though I don't know if you meant it that way. regards
