Australians Now - Poem by Paul Warren

There's a drawl when they care to speak
With an easy smile makes them complete
Discipline is a word left out
Except in a bar when it's time to shout

An easy amble as they walk
With laughter not far off when gathering to talk
And a mate is someone not let down
When there's mischief coming around

The land has bred them hard as if to know
When it's shoulders to the wheel and mate-ship on the go
For Australians will fight for the right
In freedom's call shoulders together packed up tight.
