These are the men

I get continually annoyed by how we focus on negatives so much in Australian media, in particular how all men are bad.  They are not.  I have been priviliaged to meet so many amazing, caring men.  This is essentially for the millions of good men out there.

Welcome to No. 4 of Keegan’s story which starts with the inspiring sentence “My name is Keegan and I am dead.”  Seems like a pretty hard sentence to get a story out of but I am very happy with the results.

My name is Keegan and … 4

A student again

The pot sits on the shove, the flames likcking it’s bottom.

It blackens up and heats and stews

Arguments are not forgotten.

As the day heats, so too the pot.

Injustices are percieved.

You said hello, or so you thought, “How’s your day?” as well

But heard was “You’re a rotter, you’re a tosser.”

The simmering reaches boiling point

Chaos erupts, the pot explodes

Contents flying indiscriminately

Until empty once more, flat, drained.

The simmering stew, a student again.
