Wonderful piece. Congratulations! Look forward to reading more of your poems in the future.

Good one, Diddie....I think your poem amply summarises the plight of many local writers in PNG.


Thank you Michael, Phil and Barbara for your comments.

That poem was written when I tried so hard to show people what I had to offer but every time each door closed in my face.

That really motivated me to construct this poem.

I'm with you Phil.

That looks like a candidate for the poetry prize Michael.

Well done Diddie!

This is an exceptional write. I enjoy the way this poem was constructed. Well done Diddie.

Wonderful, Diddie.
I've been putting stories of what I know about Sepik history since the coming of the "white man" on the Sepik Region Development Discussion Blog, but it is the old PNG stories of your history that must be saved.
As a teacher in the 1970s and 1980s I used to collect them and had them printed for my classes. I'll have to see if I can find a copy.
