“Old men and young, while gathered around the social beer table, relate their experience and quantity of beer they have swallowed at one sitting, or in one day, or in one evening with as much pride as an old hunter would rehearse his achievements in the forest or jungle. They seem to be as proud of the capacity of their stomachs as a prize fighter is of his muscle.” — Henry Ruggles, 1883

MICHAEL LEUNIG

They’re privatising things we own together.
And though we’re still connected by the weather
They say that sharing things is now unsound.

They’re lonelifying all the public spaces.
They’re rationalising swags and billabongs.
They’re awfulisin

g nature’s lovely places,
Dismantling the dreaming and the songs.”
