The tension builds with less than 24 hours until the Kurilpa Poets SUBVERSIFY event takes place on Sunday 25th September at 2 pm, with Feature Poet Jonothan Sri
leading the vanguard of our highly trained cadre of subversive Poets.
Government forces are already erecting barricades around the compound as supporters gather in the nearby safety of Musgrave Park. Several on the spot fines have already been slapped on poet protesters for attempting to declaim Haiku in a public space and one man was led away on suspicion of speaking in Blank Verse. Meanwhile, a break-away faction of bush-poets have set up camp by the Billabong..sorry, I meant the Rotunda, from which they are flying the Eureka Flag.
JEM SPARKLE Steps Up
Meanwhile in news just to hand, we learn that there are dramatic events occuring on the Musical Front. After the chaos following the mysterious dissappearance of Mystery Musician, Dawn Daylight, several days ago, Kurilpa apparatchiks were relieved to be able to announce that Kurilpa Poet favourite, Jem Sparkle, would be stepping up to provide the days soundtrack.
Jem always lifts the mood with her charming presence and charged performances, so we look forward to seeing her return on this occasion.
Meanwhile, marching as always to the beat of his very own samba band, Visual Arts Director and known refusnik,
Shane K will be showing the Works of the Greats!
Great Early Illustrators of Childrens Books, that is.
Judicious selections from the illustrations of John Tenniel, Beatrix Potter and Sheppard, amongst others, will be presented for your delectation, and as always, expect our erudite Arts Director to deliver an informal but illuminating dissertation on the subject.
