Monopoly on Stolen Land

By | 1 February 2022

Cousins bargaining, collecting, rolling dice –
Monopoly on stolen land.
Buying and auctioning and mortgaging,
nicking money while Banker’s gone,
all in the stinking heat.

How strange the joy of rolling an unowned Flinders Street Station,
when that place was stolen two centuries ago
when that place has been kin since time immemorial.
