Australia - Kangaroos - Poem by Paul Warren

When God designed kangaroos
Was there not much left to choose?
Little arms to hold gums leaves but no clout
And strong back legs for bounding about

Then there's the pouch for the joey to thrive
With a strong heavy tail in balance to jive
They live only in Australia so as a traveller
Go to the Land Down Under in the never never

People remember Skippy as the one
And kangaroos on our national coat won
They look so friendly and will always be
Part of Australia for the world to see.
