On the face of the story lie multiple questions which are even more relevant today with global climate change and Australia’s long running drought as they were in the 1990’s when this story was first told. How do policy initiatives about climate change and agricultural industries meet with the thoughts, feelings and emotions of rural people who have built their lives, communities and industries around, in this instance, sheep and wool growing? Perhaps the angel weeping on the roof of the shearing shed might tell its own story of leadership – or lack thereof – when our backs are against the wall.

I loathe maggots and, as a child helping in the shearing shed, I used to bribe my brothers ‘I’ll do your turn to wash up if you do my maggoty sheep’. My father, however, had a large smooth scar on his leg as a result of a tropical ulcer he gained during his time as a POW on the Burma/Siam Railway. ‘Maggots were good’ he used to tell us as kids ‘they kept my ulcer clean’. Then, sometimes, he’d tease us by pretending to get his trusty POW spoon, scoop out some maggots and eat them. ‘Vitamins’ he’d say and he’d always pronounce it ‘vit-a-mins’.
