To the tune of a Land Down Under.....brought back by lack of popular demand:

...........................................

'Traveling Oz in search of Zombie

.

We came across this would be Brumbie

.

Smaller than a starving jockey

.

He said 'no problem mate, watch me'

.

Then he sang

.

'I come from a Land Down Under

.

Where the women booze and men slumber

.

They cant even hear the thunder

.

When they snore way down under'

.

.

.

He was off to see this Indian doctor

.

In a surgery by the Yarra river

.

For a co.cktail of tonic and diuretics

.

Great results...negative test metrics

.

And he said yeah!

.

'I come from a Land Down Under

.

Where Larkham whines and refs blunder

.

One can't even hear the thunder

.

When they moan way down under

.

.

.

Next we saw him he was full of bustle

.

Six foot four and carved in muscle

.

I said 'son do you speaka my language'

.

He just laughed and gave me a steroid sandwich

.

And he roared

.

I come from a land down under

.

Where pills are chugged while the suits slumber

.

They can't even hear the thunder

.

Cause the story's buried deep down under'

I liked it but no doubt it will draw howls of anger....who cares!

The Bunnies went downhill after Jake White left. They had one decent season afterward, but then seemed to lack commitment or a game plan. Jake White taught them how to maul, lineout play and defense- and when to play a 10 man game. Larkham offered the backline skills to compliment Jake White.

mozart, you are a poet but fortunately, u don't know it. 


Funny. But I am sure once the Aussies sober up u will have a few compliments.

Keep them coming.......

Cloudy, well said about life.

Aussie rugby appears to be on the decline. Not many players have left to play up North so what is the issue?

 I have always loved this poem. How about one dealing with our kiwi bird brain friends!

 Beeno, I for one am flattered that you would like a poem written about kiwis but modesty precludes me encouraging such efforts... kiwis are humble by nature.:angel:
