18 - Poem by Harrison Bishop

18 years,
And a couple of days
You were born to such parents,
Worst part, you had no say

You have the same name as a town in the A.C.T
The last couple of years haven't been cool,
But there is still mum, dad, your sister and me,
And Christie in the area with the pool

Playing netball,
Then later hockey,
You play for Souths now but you did play for Regals,
And you know someone on T.V, yeaaah Lachy....

Now it is 18 years later in time
With fireworks every year
For this line I can't think of a rhyme...
By the way, you can now drink beer!

When you leave home for future endeavours,
You won't be allowed home,
No never!
Because someone has stolen your room....

Go out and party and go have fun,
But try not to be the one passed out on the floor,
It's been 18 times since the first one,
Since the 31st of December 1994.

Poet's Notes about The Poem
