Jack Iversen Of Old Wonthaggi - Poem by Francis Duggan

Born and raised in Wonthaggi in the old coal mining Town
Jack is the son of a miner and he is one who knew renown
As East Wonthaggi's best and fairest footballer when he was in his glorious prime
Now he is in his late seventies and slowed by the passage of time.

Jack is an honourable fellow in him there is so much good
Always willing to help out others he would help you if he could
People like him so valuable to society pity to see him grow old
His life would make a great story and his story deserves to be told.

Jack would never leave Wonthaggi there he will live till he die
His bones they will rest forever under the South West Gippsland sky
Hope he will live a few more decades people like him we do need
He is such a great role model and by good example he lead.

Jack Iversen of old Wonthaggi as nice a person as one could wish to meet
He lives in the old family dwelling in one of the old homes in Loch Street
There is so much to like about him a smile easily comes to his face
'Tis people like him make Wonthaggi to live in a very nice place.
