History of the South-East Forests Campaign in Limerick Form

This book comprised of 144 limericks tells the story of the fight to save the native forests of south-eastern Australia in the late 1980’s. Sometimes nostalgic, but always humorous, this work by author and blockader, Colin Gubra, will be available soon.

For the forests of dale and dell
And the trees that we knew so well
In those heady old times,
I dedicate these rhymes
To the memory of those that fell.

The passing of time soon erases
Our memories of people and places,
For here in this book
You will find, if you look,
A whole lot of names without faces.

There once was a greenie named Bouddica
Who thought chopping down trees was no goodica.
I remember her passion
When she said, in a fashion,
“I’d save all the trees if I couldicca”.

never were wiser words said
That change isn’t something to dread,
For when once you could claim
Fifteen minutes of fame
You now get a limerick instead.
