family friend of the platypus 
with mini feet tiny petite 
his costume’s fit for trick-or-treat

one foot tall fat overall 
taking all day crawling to haul
seemingly strange 
he roams his range estranged 

brown round with bill profound 
elliptical eyes see around

Brand New
"Brand New"

I'd be damned to quit
Putting out some brand new s***
With a brand new drip
In my a step a brand new skip

Brand new tint
Steering wheel with a brand new grip
In a brand new whip
With a brand new chick

On my hip...Read More

Black Hole in the Creek
Oh yeah if you’re a fisherman,
and you’re rung up by a mate,
there’s always time to put down tools
with no need to contemplate,
‘cause fishing has that magic draw
to take you to your peak -
and evening is always best
to fish in the...Read More

The Platypus

The duck-billed platypus 
is a bizarre anomaly!
Why, its anatomy defies
the laws of probability!

Could it be the Lord
was distracted or bored?
Or was it an evolutionary glitch
or a confounding hoax. Which?

Or is the platypus a hodge-podge 
of leftover appendages 
of other complete...Read More

Like a platypus
on a sunny shiny day sitting outside in the garden
sipping nectar on a chair at a round outdoor table on the lawn
with my mom, someone else becomes interested in me

I'm only 3 and Fuzzy is my best friend

Elephant with crooked tooth
and I did not know they had them
Lion cub in drag
funny to everyone but the cabaret master
prancing around in my thought waves
taking me hostage

with attitude from Hades,
wearing pink top hat
with glitzy yellow band
unnoticed in this...Read More

Friends of Wattle Creek
For many years, the creek, ran passed as a drain,
Polluted and unloved; a poisoned murky vein.
A favoured dumping place, for household unwanted things -
out of sight, out of mind; and no good what it brings.

Life was almost non-existent in the...Read More

Early one morn the sun did sink
   in the west as the moon arose
And Farmer Jones inspected his rose
   of purple corn, which began to dance
Shedding sheaves, donning pants...

While in the barn, the cow was neighing

Premium Member Echidna and Platypus Besties
The echidna and the platypus were friends.
They both had a teeny tiny secret, one and the other.
The sweet platypus had venom on his ends.
He was told to keep this hidden by his mother.

The short-nosed echidna could lay eggs as well...Read More

A Sliding Slice of Precious Peace
Gimme a break, Drake
In the space I own 
In May, June or July to rake
In tonnes of peace without the groan

That serves no useful purpose
In the scheme of strategies I adopt
To rid my life of the toxic venom from the...Read More

The elusive, furry platypus,
Is a surviving monotreme,
Living above and below the water, 
Of any Aussie stream,

Where it lives a pure autonomous life, 
With a bric a brac design,
Made up from bits of others, 
A sort of animal Frankenstein,

With its duck...Read More

Beasts of wild amber
WE SIT and watch our amber tigers
beautifully silent now, their stripes gone, however
they lie by the bedside in their fleeting splendour
with the serenity of heaven’s blue
a reminder of heartbreak on a wedding day
an image of awakening
I think that they’re dying.

a quote from Montaigne: (1533-1592):

To a Platypus
My dear Ornithorhynchus,
Why do you confuse us?
Neither mammal nor bird
You are a creature absurd.

You are a mammal they say
Yet yellow yolked eggs you lay
And suckle your young
To scale evolution's rung.

Your pelt is so fine
But you root like the swine
In the...Read More
