Small Poppy Syndrome

May 27, 2011

National stereotypes are so misleading in real life, though very useful in literature.D H Lawrence hated Australia and wrote a long-winded moan about the place in “Kangaroo” which I attribute more to his poor state of health at the time, rather than to any general misdemeanours on the part of Australians.Some Australians have asked me if I am disappointed with the lack of history on the continent, but since I dislike history, 200 years of recorded comings and goings is quite enough.I tend to develop short poppy syndrome when there so that the taller ones can bloom as a group. Apparently they are obsessed with this subject.
