A great idea for Christmas presents… get a taste for Aussie poetry! I’ve been included in Best Australian Poetry 2014 and there’s loads a great poems in there. I recommend some of the political ones pointing at Australia’s appalling immigration policy and some reflecting the World War one anniversary and other conflicts.
