Ba-ba They called him ba and sometimes ba, The bubba Heenie one, Caught with a sheep in his ute to keep, The owner caught him some, No chops for ba-ba, none Bells boxing tent saw him fight, Big bugger thumped someone, He raised his arms, he won the right, His pants fell down, dum dum, Interesting sight ole son, His doctor ripped a kidney out, Ba-ba he wasn’t thin Doctor said he’d get a dozer about, To put his guts back in, ole ba-ba had to grin, the doctors wage won’t come, the dollars all doubtful in, an overdraft unsung… Don Johnson

    Hi Don, I like the strong use of literary divices in this piece. You are very skillful in using imagery, symbols and methaphors in capturing strong essence in your poems. Well done.
