- The Anzac Bridge: : Humour

Rating: 2.7

Sydney Harbour Bridge indulges in global fame
But it's not the only bridge who can claim
To span the sparkling waters of this natural sensation
We number seven in all, and we'd also like some admiration

I don't begrudge the press it gets and I'm not one to crow
But I'm the longest span cable-stayed bridge in Oz, oh didn't you know
From my dual soaring towers, a myriad of cables hang with elegant grace
You silly little coat hanger, in...your....face!

From day one you've charged a toll, a horse with rider cost three pence
But crossing the Anzac Bridge is complementary, you won't pay a cent
Standing at my entries are an NZ soldier and Aussie digger, brother-in-arms
I'm stylish and stupendous, one of Sydney's less known charms

(Sydney, Australia 2010)
