    Another case of 'back to the future'?

    Henry Lawson

    "By our place in the midst of the farthest seas we are fated to stand alone.
    When the nations fly at each others throats let Australia look to its own;
    Let her spend her gold on the barren West for the land and its manhood's sake;
    For the South must look to its strength in the storm that is yet to break."
    (from, "The Storm That Is To Come" 1902)



    "So we must fly a rebel flag
    As others did before us,
    And we must sing a rebel song
    And join in rebel chorus
    We'll make the tyrants feel the sting
    O' those that they would throttle;
    They needn't say the fault is ours
    If blood should stain the wattle!"
    (From "Freedom on the Wallaby", 1891)

    "And lo! with shops all shuttered, I beheld a city street
    And in the warning distance heard the tramp of many feet...
    Yes, the star of revolution's shining now as redly bright,
    And the shots from Eureka sound as sharp and near to-night"
    (From "Land of Living Lies", 1909)

    "'Twas of such stuff the men were made who saw our nation born,
    And such as Lalor were the men who led their footsteps on;
    And of such men there'll many be, and of such leaders some,
    In the roll-up of Australians on some dark day yet to come"
    (From "Eureka, 1889")
