Making The 'Mal' Poem Easy - Poem by Douglas Scotney
a politician putting on a moral face
by having it that he won't be told directly
who has donated to his campaign,
isn't having it that he'll be told in-directly:
'Advise me to invite so-and-so
to watch my daughter's train.'
'...Damn it man
what's wrong with your perception?
If you want to have it easy:
who has donated
to my daughter's wedding
and her wedding reception.'
Poet's Notes about The Poem
Malcolm Fraser: Australian Prime minister who said, 'Life wasn't meant to be easy.'
