HOODWINKED - poem


My wife returns home from a short walk to our main street: ‘It’s like a festival day. People are out and about and drinking coffee and having cups of tea and chatting in the sunshine.’ We’re hanging out the sheets and I am wondering if the citizens are just hoodwinked – ‘There’s a bit of a breeze but it’s lovely’ - if the easy domestic life of this small Australian country town is blinded by comfort from the wars and strife of so many countries and the troubled peoples of the world.

- Andrew Burke
