A gospel for suburbia.

Eternal, infant vision.

It’s mid-nineteen-nineties Australia and I’m a small child,
playing on the lambs-wool carpet.

It’s mid-nineteen-nineties Australia and the streets are filled,
watermelon slices and pool parties are my dreams fulfilled.

It’s mid-nineteen-nineties Australia and the parents are young,
enjoying their freedom and their responsibilities; it’s fun.

It’s mid-nineteen-nineties Australia and I’m the summer son,
swimming in the pool with Pa just like I did with Mum.

It’s mid-nineteen-nineties Australia and I’m the king of the garden,
digging for legless lizards with Dad, mentor and chum.

It’s mid-nineteen-nineties Australia and I’m warming;
Growing;
Learning.;
Sharing;
Exploring in the summer sun.

A gospel for suburbia.

Artist's Description

This is the first time I’ve written about my childhood. If my parents enjoy this poem half-as-much as I enjoyed my childhood than I’ll be very happy :).

The poem seems quite infantile to me… but I guess that comes with the nature of what I was talking about :p.

One last point, I’ve just written and uploaded two poems (this is the second one) about mid-nineteen-nineties suburbia. This is the positive poem. The other is the negative.
