On Swinburne
It is true that Swinburne with words had a way
Though long dead his poems they are widely read today
He did bridge the gap between modern and rhyme
One of the most popular poets of his time
Nature Herself She Looks Lovely Today
The sun is not shining the sky looking gray
But Nature herself she looks lovely today
The magpie lark in the park is singing pee wee
And honeyeaters chirp on every blossoming tree
A Club Legend
In that memorable Grand Final such a great game he did play
But the man he was two decades back he sure is not today
Now in his early fifties the years have left him gray
Time even takes care of the best as some are known to say
They Came From Distant Places
They came from distant places to this far southern shore
The men who built the city at rest forever more
Some of them could not speak the language but they were strong and young
And they were willing workers and their praises ought be sung
A Wasted Energy
I cannot say I hate anybody as hate does seem a wasted energy
Although there are people not many that I would rather not meet or see
As people I can't say I like them and they surely do not like me
We have very little in common and we look at life quite differently
Am I Any Different To The Rabbit Or Hare
Though the ravages of time on me physically show
So little of life and of Nature I know
What hair I have on my head is looking rather gray
And clearly I have known a far better day.
Not Exactly The New Robin Hood
You live for yourself and your own self esteem
And you are not the one that to many you seem
But this great image of yourself you do create
And your's is the name many do celebrate.
The Arrogant Winner
The arrogant winner may bask in his fame
And wave to the fans as they chant aloud his name
He feels so superior to those he has beat
And he feels so enraptured in his own self conceit
It Is Often Said Of Karma
It is often said of Karma we receive what is our due
Though you may look at it quite differently you may say that is not true
Yet by saying as much you're saying to lie and cheat is quite okay
If for such you don't go to prison is that what you are trying to say?
I Find Your Subjects Boring
I find your subjects boring your conversations seem so dull
Of politics, religion and nationalism I've had a bellyfull
The World only divided by human created borders in reality 'tis all of the one crust
We were born of a woman and we decay to dust
