Australia - The Bunyip - Poem by Paul Warren

In the billabongs by the shade of a coolabah
There lurks a monster who from the depths it does star
Be careful in the summertime when seeking the cool water
When you jump the cooling waters look around like you oughta

But you can see one when you go to Murray Bridge
And you go to the Murray bank to look around a smidge
Walk down to the grotto and put a coin in the slot
You'll see a bunyip rise up from the water to scare you a lot!
