Billy Bong

Outback Down Under He rode out one day Joined by a dingo Who wanted to play The dingo soon snarled Like it would attack The next thing he knew It snarled with a pack His boomerang flew Around the whole bunch But never hit one They ate him for lunch A rather sad fact His bones lie around No longer intact All over the ground Though bleached by the sun An unpleasant scene The Outback's great fun When its Halloween. That may make you weep And maybe lose sleep But no one counts sheep When bones want to creep!

Hi Rico, Loved this write. As you must have noticed I enjoy my "rhyme poems", this one is witty, a little macabre and clever. You have a certain type of writing poetry that no one else has - awesome! Yasou, Jennifer

G'day Rico ... it's the Bunyips in the billabongs that you really have to worry about, but the dingoes as you wrote will have you for lunch if you escape from the Bunyips that are so ferocious that nobody has survived that has seen one - nice take on Halloween Rico - Lindsay

I was in such a rush I neglected to type in the last verse. I noticed you had not made a submission since 04.X.18, so thought if I did a Down Under, you would think, "I can do better than that" so we would get more good stuff. Aloha! Rico
