Premium Member By Gum
I come from a land barren, rugged and spacious,
Of little rain,
Its population pugnacious,
Superstitious and vain,
Devoid of refinement, and reckoned insane.

Premium Member Where's The Music Coming From

Nine tabs open, where is the music coming from
My mind's a steel trap, but it's a challenge by gum
Maybe it's the site about Mars
Or some other site quite bazaar
Maybe it's the one that challenges my cerebellum

Premium Member Stopping By Gum-Trees On A Hot Day
Whose paddock this is, I dunno,
But it'll do me for my "smoko".
It's on Bob Mackie's land, I think -
He won't begrudge a man a drink.

My old nag must be glad to stop,
She must be just about to drop.

An amazing young man is my son Scottie
He's a big boy now, I'm talking about his body
He's two sons in one
A bonus by gum
One thing's for sure, he needs extra large Jockeys

Premium Member Should Be Famous By Now

Hey this is getting to be a lot of fun
Sitting and writing limericks in the noonday sun
Too bad I'm not paid
Some are worth a week's pay
Should be real famous by now, by gum

Premium Member PETRICHOR
I have many koalifications,
Numbed by gum leaves, stupefaction,
Glazed by arid summer drought,
Real hot today, there's no doubt,
What's this? Black storm clouds?
Who said clouds were allowed?
Now there's rain a'drenching,
Oh, it's stopped, not worth mentioning,
There's a eucalyptus petrichor,
I'll daze now, did it...Read More

The Billabong
There’s an old river course with beginning and end,
now the river runs straight without this river bend,
where the water is still and the reeds do grow strong.
New life has taken over in a billabong.

The mat rush is spreading replacing the...Read More

Premium Member Do You Speak Jackanese

Well goodness gracious, by gar and by gum
Jackanese is a language quite foreign to some
It's basically simple
Here's the principle
Be a “nihilarian” while sitting down on your bum

“nihilarian” - a person who deals with things lacking importance

A Little Bit Of Slackjaw
Twas wooden, and my Ivy stick
Did claggy with a cobbled tone.
The moon, in shade rode whimsy high
And whiffled with a moan.

By hairy dog and camel toe
I trundled on and farted,
By gum and skinny teeth I went
Unshaven and wholehearted.

Hag I not...Read More

Premium Member Tweedle Dum And Tweedle Dee

Meet Tweedle Dum and Tweedle-Dee
Two of a kind they both lived in a tree
Way high up on the upper most branch
Not afraid of heights but why take a chance

I fail to see why they're living up there
They don't have a...Read More

How things have changed since the good old days!

The rolling hills and the farmers’ ways.

Well I never.
Eee by gum.
Well I go to the foot of our stairs.
Gan away wi yu.
And many more.

Are said, out door.
Quite a bore.
Up North.
Spoken with relish.
And verbosity.
Resound in the closetry.

Maybe they have nowt to say.
And these phrases make their day.

Trolley Folly
Kukla, Fran and Ollie,
decided to take a trolley,
to visit their sister Molly
and her little girl named Holly

But while they were on the trolley,
a parrot whose name was Polly,
bit the nose of Ollie,
who ran around the trolley,
screaming... by gosh, by gum,...Read More
