this poem is more thought provoking than entertaining as it talks about the Aboriginal’s had to work harder to live at the same standard as the white people. “put down the stone axe and pick up the steel, work like a nigger for a white mans meal” this shows the aboriginals changed their ways and worked harder to eat properly as the whites took all the food. the poem shows some entertainment in rhyming and puns. overall this poem shows the aboriginal people have lost most of their culture and this is very sad. it says “No more corroboree, Gay dance and din.” this shows the aboriginals have lost their entertainment. ” Now we got movies, And pay to go in” this shows the aboriginals pastimes and entertainments have been replaced by the white movies which cost money to see while the aboriginals entertainment and dances were free.
I did this on Friday but forgot to come and check until know! Glad I did – I can’t remember if I spotter Gladys’ backer and it is definitely only just now that the light has dawned about the dog falling off a log. Many thanks Dutch and of course Elgar – this is just the right level of overwrought cluing I want from my Elgar puzzles. I spotted about half of the Nina which is pretty good by my lights. The periodical Elgar is definitely the highlight of my Toughie-solving experience, much though I may occasionally carp!
