The ten minute documentary is about an Aboriginal in Australia who turned to drugs with an unfortunate outcome although he was rehabilitated. The film was made to increase awareness of the futility of taking drugs.
Dectina is a variation of the Dectina Refrain created by Marion
Friedenthal. The Dectina genre contains 10 syllable counted
lines: 1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9/ and 10 being the first 10 syllables
(or 4 lines).
The acrostic portion was added by Philip of Poetfreak. The first letter of each line forms the vertical acrostic.
