AbstractHistoryArchive Description

A poem that affirms a deep attachment to the poet's adopted homeland (implicitly, Australia). The poem takes the form of a prayer or plea to the adopted homeland to be hospitable to the speaker. This country is characterised as a 'guardian of liberal violators of traditional values' ('opiekunko liberalnych gwałcicieli tradycyjnych wartości') and 'a country of many-coloured mercenaries of imaginary democracy' ('kraju różnokolorowych najemników urojonej demokracji').
