The Nacreous Oughts

19 March 2004

"Peter Jackson could ask to be made Prime Minster now and his hoards of loyal Kiwis would storm parliament, slaughter Clark and install Aragorn as chief whip, Sauron as leader of the opposition, and Gandalf as speaker of the House."
Fraser in Telling Stories About New Zealand blog.

"...Expecting a tank mine, or bullet to tell,
or a Russian made rocket - to take us to hell.
At Assembly Place "Lima", the site of an old kraal,
we finally halt - and put our backs to the wall.

Raise the stars of our nation, raise the Brit's Union Jack,
put the dread right behind us - for there's no turning back.
Not there for the fighting, not there for the fall,
we are the friend of no one - and the enemy of all.
...We are the Peacekeepers."
From "Kiwi Peacekeepers" by Mike Subritzky.
