Musings of the noble bushmen, my mural " Aboriginal "

A native man is said to be, ignorant, not like you and me,

Who culture we've emblazoned on, some intrinsic tranquility.

But I  can argue with regret, that we have lost that foolish bet.

As we rattle on about, process and stages, the native man has seen the ages.

And passed on down the secrets that, would marvel us, and leave us flat.

The genius of the hunting man, who fashions life without a debt.

Far surpasses lives we've set.

Our lives are lived,  always indoors, we couldn't survive without the stores.

As we parade our intellect,  the stronger man still you can bet, 

Is happier than you without regrets, he's gone off hunting, not paying rent.

if society collapsed, nothing to spend, we would see him round the bend,

Still living life, of days without end.

With every culture we erase, we loose the wisdom of a base,

Of pioneers who taught us grace, while smiling rightly to our face.

Of this I say the Savage here, is not a brown man with a beard,

But the sloven fool who carries the rear, and lazily just drinks his beer.

SO let us take a lesson here, Society's the one to fear.

The banks still rob us for this and that, it's  a wonder we can afford a hat.

The "Deadly" man has got to be, a dinkum Aborigine.

This is my favourite piece of yours Dewey

Well said

I think people are simply jealous of that life style, hence why they resort to spiteful and bitter quips like “stick clapper”

More like “why the hell do these barbarians live a better life than I, civilised man!”

Truly sad - burn in the depths of Dante’s hell, you cunts

Amazing painting too!

Ta mate, the real barbarians are the ones that evict the poor for lack of finances, and judge the indigenous. I too, hope those tall poppie twats crackle. Ta again, the painting is actually a mural I painted at my local coffee house.

You've got an open mind and a talented pen. This is a powerful piece. I totally agree that "Society's the one to fear"! Write On!

This was such a thrill to read. The bushman may perhaps be the best man. There is nothing you can take away from them that deeply disrupts them. One could take their life, but why fear death when your soul belongs to the clouds?

Their language is the stars, they're connected to the dust. There is no perhaps about it. We can learn much more from them than they could ever from us.

Nice piece. I enjoyed reading it.

Ta Mate, one of my best mates was an "Old Australian" kind, sincere, and honest.
Modern society could learn alot from the indigenous cultures around the world.
