"You've heard of John Gilbert and Ben Hall,
He was on good terms with them.
That big rock on his property,
Gilbert's Lookout it's called.
Gilbert could peer out for miles.
Now how did a young fellow
from nothing - with nothing -
walk into a property
so well set up, with plenty of stock?"
My father asked about his father,
peering from the rock of old age
into the land before his birth.
If I'm the heir of ancient theft
I sup with silver
my grandfather stole from my grandfather."
from "Spring Forest" by Geoffrey LehmannA biography of Ross McInerney written in verse.
