A poetry collection in support of the 2019-2020 Australian Bushfire relief effort. Edited by C S Hughes. (Maximum Felix Media) 2020
The 2019-2020 Australian bushfire season has seen unprecedented destruction to homes, to lives, and especially to to our bush creatures and the environment in which they live. There has also been an unprecedented effort to bring relief and rescue to the families, and wildlife whose homes and habits have been destroyed.
Australian poets have come together in this anthology, both to reflect our shared experience of the ongoing climate catastrophe, and to contribute to the relief effort.
All proceeds from this book will go towards bushfire relief and wildlife care and rescue charities.
Dear Mr Morrison
what will it take
what do we need to do
how long and loudly must we
berate you, implore you, plead with you
to display some genuine
emotion and empathy
and sorrow for this conflagration
consuming our country? . . . . . .
