Among our three dogs of mongrel breed
that mingle well with kittens 
in their jubilant mood
our African birds give us delight
cheering us while in their cage, verily secured.

Through their guarding prowess
our dogs keep us physically protected
while barking unceasingly 
signaling presence of...Read More

Premium Member Chalk And Cheese
Once there were two sisters named
Chalk and Cheese.
Long ago, Cheese was blamed,
Without reprise,
For a theft Chalk had committed.
Cheese, innocent, was soundly whipped -
Stealing could not be permitted,
In the bud it must be nipped.
Meanwhile Chalk, racked with guilt,
Slunk like a mongrel...Read More

My favourite animal is large,
And, believe me, no mirage,
It is of a mongrel breed,
And is very much in need.
My animal is every dog
That cruel owners starve and flog,
It is every tortured cat
Set on by some nasty brat,
Every pet that's left...Read More

Taffy and I walk together
finding golf balls in the heather.
A true friend as we slog around
a best partner so I have found.
Wanting my dog to have a proper name
in line with respect for this noble game.
Named for rotund William Howard...Read More

Well I just love me fishing with its peace and bloody quiet,
I don’t have to worry ‘bout the ‘dickheads’ 
and I don’t have to fight.
I can spend a week out on the river doing it with ease,
and if I argue...Read More

Throwing the Light on Birth
I was out of work in thirty-three and forced to take the road,
not really looking forward toward the tramping swaggy code,
and as luck had it, just by chance, I no longer had to hike,
‘cause parked outside a doctor’s house -...Read More

A Little Kindness Never Hurts
Sit with me.
Sit with me, ragged feral,
do not be afraid,
fight for no space uncertain,
you will be soothed, you will be safe,
you only need sit with me.

Walk with me.
Walk with me, stray mongrel,
do not remain unwanted,
contest no feeding rights,
you will be...Read More

Take me to the tombstone 
let me touch the gray stone that stands

I owe so many.
And they've become overweight.
I can't carry them any longer.
Whenever I returned home
In the dead of midnight,
The debt I owe mother,
Who waited up without eating.
When I lay in drunken stupor at the wayside,
The obligation I owe the mongrel

In the lush beer gardens of New Berlin,
fräulein Democracy dalmatian died
giving birth to a litter of surrogate lies

now on a demolition blitzkrieg breathe
Wehrmacht vapors rising volcanic once again

Me real name it is Bill Vonbertouche,

Sit among the dandelions

I hate wearing flamin’ suits and I hate wearing rotten ties,

I can’t go wearing shorts and singlets or my best pair of thongs,

Across the ridges, flats and ranges, in print, on radio and stages,

Sometimes a stranger may confide, about that famous ride,
in the rodeo at Mildura's annual show.

'Whiskers'! That's who we called him and he passed through once a year

The smell of dead flowers,
Life dances at "zero hour"-s,
No wonder man is doomed,
when you sit there, deplumed.

Move away, you peasant mongrel,
I'm not to be held,
accountable or to any sense.

Lime-a-way,my sins, oh darling,
even after I washed hands,
they still feel so damning.

Question the Answer

Most people don’t ask the right question,

feel the chill when the Pluto wind blow

He’s got a twinkle in his eyes
an aversion to cold prose
he recites – obliquely – poetry
a king without his clothes.

She’s got no laces in her sneakers
still they caress her dancing feet
as she pirouettes on concrete
floating down the city...Read More
