The value of books


Keith Jackson & Friends: PNG Attitude, 9 January 2015

An entry in the Crocodile Prize
Kina Securities Award for Poetry

I’ve found the key
To where my imaginations will forever grow

I travel in a super sports car
To a place far beyond that furthest star

I go China, London, Vegas and back
And that’s pretty much all in a day’s work

Explanations and explorations
Discoveries and definitions

Spare me the gory details
I’ve something far better than HBO tales
Keep the remote, save your PS3
I’ve the key to a world of endless possibilities

Ples Singsing is envisioned to be a new platform for Papua Niuginian expressions of creativity, ingenuity and originality in art and culture. We deliberately highlight these two very broad themes as they can encompass the diverse subjects, from technology, medicine and architecture to linguistics, music, fishing, gardening et cetera. Papua Niuginian ways of thinking, living, believing, communicating, dying and so on can cover the gamut of academic, journalistic or opinionated writing and we believe that unless we give ourselves a platform to talk about and discuss these things in an open, free and non-exclusively academic space that they may remain the fodder for academics, journalists and other types of writers alone. New social media platforms have given every individual a personal space to share their feelings and ideas openly, sometimes without immediate censure. The Ples Singsing writer’s blog would like to provide another more structured platform for Papua Niuginian expressions in written, visual and audio formats while also providing some regulation of the type and content of materials to be shared publicly.
