One of the greatest poets NZ has ever birthed was born today in 1926.

Happy birthday James.

His scathing critical tone towards the NZ he saw is more necessary than ever before.

    “I look at the monolithic forces gathered; the Goliath of the state and it’s criminal justice system; the howling political animals stirred by the smell of power–blood and worked into a frenzy of allegation; the chattering classes galvanized by the fear of the tattooed face and talking up panic. It comes to me to arm ourselves against the modern day Goliaths.”

    Shame he was such a rotten useless father.

      Unless you are his daughter, you have no right to say that about a dead man.

      The fact that you did, suggests what type of person you are.
