Australia - South Australians Talk Differently - Poem by Paul Warren

Australians have language dialects that stand out
In each state their speech is different about
But they say we South Australians are different now
And are more British in the way we annunciate each vowel

The test results came out that South Aussies can be picked
From others when we speak together with Australians to fit
It may be that we were the only free settlers here
And we're not convicts in the Aussie Royalty there

So the easterners say 'pule' for pool
And 'schule' instead of school
But who cares when it comes down to it
We are proud Australians in our country to fit

Poet's Notes about The Poem

There was an article in the paper saying that South Australians are the easiest Australian dialect to pick. Having a convict in the family is known as Australian Royalty when looking at your family history.
