Happy New Year Everyone


As a rhymer I'd be neglecting my duty

To not wish you a Happy New Year

Bate your breath as to what I might say next

To which you can say “Dear oh dear”


It's been bloody hot where I write from

Someone said “Hi you flaming galah”

My reaction to this as an Aussie

Is ha-bloody-ha-bloody-ha


(No offence Po....)


One fan of mine (whom I won't mention)

Said keep WOLing your thoughts though they're rhymey

We do like a variety coming up on our screen

Keep mixing your good with your grimey


One poet did make a nice comment

A comment which I liked, left me smiling

One that I will easily continue

She said simply “never stop rhyming”




I hope 2019 is good to you. I will endeavour to keep you entertained – from 10,000 miles away

Let's see if we can rhyme your 'new acquaintance' up a bit Po

May new acquaintance ne'er be forgot
For the sake of poetry rhyme
I'm almost fast asleep my friend
I'm going zonk this time

zonk zzzzzzz ?

Looks like I've gone jumped the gun Po
New Year is still one day away
Your flaming galah is still dizzy
Bloody hell Po what more can I say?

As I type this it's 10.22 here
People anxious, waiting midnight
To watch fireworks welcome new year
Can I keep myself 'wake till they light?


My problem' s I'm sipping some white wine
Replying my answer to Po
It's making me quite sorta sleepy
(Turn on the telly Don, wake up for the show)
