FOR MY MATE (August Postcard Poem 2017)

In the land of Willoughby,

where the wallabies roam,

there lives an echidna

sprung from a digeridoo moan.


Down under, down deep,

under the strange Aussie moon,

this echidna waltzes matildas

to a ridgy-didgy type tune.


They spin and they glide

along the billabong’s rim,

dining on bush nuts

and casks of aged Pimm.


I salute you, Master Echidna,

guru of wahoo,

and weep crocodile tears

for the Land of Oz,

known solely for its roo.


For Elizabeth Woods
