Reflections of the court's decision

SKP - Kennedy Point Marina Appeal

A lament from Waiheke to the Money Men
by Kathy Voyles

Now  
when
I watch the tui’s
Tumbling
In their love dance
Over the teen
Pohutukawas
Red stamens dying
On dry clay
I remember I am fighting
Exhaustively
A battle

With money men
(they want big boats
In a quiet bay)
We’re tired
Waiheke tired
Even when we sleep
as solace comes
Money men
Do you need more
Concrete, asphalt, tyres, oil
Build for us

Tiny houses, eco-villages, gardens, a hospice
Instead, rest
With your grandkids
On a happy beach
Shells in their tiny fists
Not concrete
Floating pontoons
Rest yourselves

Quiet picnic
Wouldn’t that
Be good
