The Tree of Knowledge

I.
The tree of knowledge
Marks the historic birthplace
Of the giants.

II.
Behold the vanishing icon
Vague signs of life in winter’s garden
Swirling mists!

III.
The sacred tree:
The pulling power of persistent image
Replenish the land Down Under

IV.
The tree of knowledge
In times of crisis and uncertainty!
But who sprayed the herbicides?

V.
The dreamtime vandals
Desecrated the tree of knowledge;
Sparking the brain drain.

VI.
Tree of knowledge at Barcaldine
A potent symbol of love and hope
In a changing world.

VII.
Now, put on your
Thinking hat and help nurture
The tree of knowledge.
