26 January 1788










          Sydney Cove



                                 A Fibonacci Poem for Australia Day  





                                                  That year

                                                  Long ago

                                          Marking the landing

                                 Of the First Fleet – eleven ships

                  Carrying the sad cargo of the condemned and damned

        That day today we celebrate as Australia Day – the birth of a new nation

Bathed in warm sunshine, may she prosper fair and black, or any other pretty colour

                  The Promised Land of great riches and blessed Freedom

                                        Citizenship ceremonies

                                            For the lucky ones

                                              Fireworks! Wow!

                                                    Fun day
