Can see how influential Lawson's poetry was on the Australian mythos regarding mateship. Enjoyable characters throughout.

Only a bit of this quotes Lawson, but the whole thing shows how much of a hero he was to Australian Labor a little over 20 years after his death. And--Australia or America--maybe things haven't changed so much. Here are some of Lawson's words quoted:

I wonder would the apathy of wealthy men endure
Were all their windows level with the faces of the poor?
Ah! Mammon’s slaves, your knees shall knock, your hearts in terror beat,
When God demands a reason for the sorrows of the street;
The wrong things and the bad things
And the sad things that we meet
In the filthy lane and alley, and the cruel, heartless street.

Even for a non-Australian, these four poems railing against the moneyed, non-working class and against English sovereignty over Australia are pretty powerful. Lawson's language is memorable, and his indignation is even better. This is a short read, available on Gutenberg Australia. Don't miss it.
