Our Everlasting Thoughts

Poems from the Riverland

Cherlyn Anne McKenzie was born to Keith and Myra Wuttke on 3rd June 1970. She is now residing at Mannum SA, as you can see from the cover of my book with the Murray Princess. Being the youngest of two. I was a workaholic and I didn’t know I was a poet till 1997, I was 27 years old. I’d finally found the perfect guy and the poems started coming out of the woodwork. I had a husband and 3 lovely children. I was absolutely blessed because of my pregnancy problems with them, I’m lucky to have them.

I was bullied many a time during school, and as a result of that, I was starved of education. I didn’t start learning until 1986 at College, then I started learning with mature-age students.

I finally refrained from guys coz they treated me so badly, you will see this in the poems I’ve written.

I’ve finally found after all this time someone to support me with my poems.

The Devil Thumbs a Ride

A biography of transgression and hope

We had just arrived in Denpasar for a ten-day Balinese holiday. I was with a young and beautiful girlfriend. We walked through the airport terminal and joined the queue for customs. No-one knew that I had smuggled a substantial amount of heroin and methadone onto the plane and was now carrying it through the airport.

After waiting in the queue for just a couple of minutes, I noticed an Indonesian policeman looking at me. As I looked away, I realised that he had started walking towards me, and he had a sniffer dog. All I had was a few seconds to think of something, anything. Perhaps a distraction of some kind… and it was going to have to be a bloody good one.

I stepped out of the line.
