At times I get befuddled

Spinning round and round

C'mon can you blame me?

I'm living upside down


I'ts OK you UK'ers

And you in gay Francee

I don't have your northern clime

To keep me fuddle free


I'm rhyming in this fuddled state

With glass of white in hand

Purpose? Just to send a smile

From my upside-down land


So what will happen with my day

Now that I'm so wine-fuddled?

Going round and round I am

More so than ever muddled


Rhyme I use in two ways

For serious and fun

Today I thought's a smile-day

With that, my rhyme, it's done

I think of Auz more as the shadow lands.

The under belly of the beast.

Never cross an Aardvark

Nope #uck that for a lark

Don -
You may be living down under
But you rarely raise a frown;
And it's a source of welcome wonder
That you're under but seldom down! ?

And a smile you most certainly created.. I wear my upside down frown
And patiently waiting the next ?

Well done ?

Good poem Don.
I loved being in Oz
but it's hard to keep cash in your pocket
when you are upside-down !
