Dave Proust, known as Prousty is a real character. He grew up on an egg-producing chook farm with two brothers and a sister.
He wrote this poem after his father's best mate lost his property to drought.
"The bank foreclosed on him and then sold the Property which was in the family for 5 generations. The property is now owned by a foreign Consortium, this is one of hundreds of stories, Aussie farms and industry now owned by business men from other countries. Foreign investment is one thing! Foreign ownership is a real problem and is happening all over Australia."
