Young Lightning brothers left this Earth long ago

They travelled far away to become stars in the night


They were alive here as men on Australia’s vast ancient land

Until Creation Dog’s ear was cut


Then a transformation occurred and doubt fixed their form as

their ceremonial guise became real

So every man’s totem was born be it wallaby, lizard or seal.


The Lightning brothers themselves were initiated in to the

Great Stellar Family Above

Leaving behind a blueprint, a legacy, a memory of all that



So our babies are born and each one is given their

ancestor’s totem to have

One they cannot hunt

One who looks down from the stars

One who teaches a trinity of love.
