LOST LOVE in Aussie slang

written 3rd Oct 2013



I was in love with the most lovable sheila
 but she did darn take off with me heeler

Overnight, she had packed their bags
 not just me dog, gone too with me scallywags

Left with just a simple note
 she had found a more loving bloke

Heartbroken to have lost them all
 I gave me mate Bluey a call

Together we drank more than just a slab
 ending up so hammered, he called us a cab

As the lonely days passed and tears filled me eyes
 by crikey it hit me, suddenly I came to realise

What a bloomin idiot, she deserved such love and respect
 every night boozin with me mates, my true love I did neglect

I'm gunna cut me drinkin and win her heart back
 fair dinkum fella's, you can flamin bet on that!

    Great poem, Denise. Good expression of the broken-hearted feeling. I can totally relate, enjoyable overall. Check out some of my poems, might find some you like. Peace.

    Your Aussie slang is truly Fair Dinkum, I like the narrative, very well written. Coming from England if I was to do this poem it would be in Liverpudlian slang I guess, as I don't even have an accent I would never be able to translate this like you did, well done, and congratulations for becoming a Premium Member.
