Authors for Queensland Auction

a mother & father
lift theirs to safety
& are swept away

a small boy
saves his brother
the great wet rages

searching soldiers form a line
with broken hearts &
sombre faces

The Queensland flood disaster has devastated Australia. People worldwide are donating to the flood effort, including us writers. Please bid online here for the Queensland flood writers auction. I've donated two signed copies of my poetry collection 'Gil Scott Heron is on Parole' (Picaro Press, 2010), which you can bid for here. Get in quick - the auction closes on Monday (Jan 24, 2010). Alternatively, you can donate money directly here. Please, dig deep.
