A Legend Revisited Ian Mackay

There was movement in the carpark, for the word had passed around, That the trolley from Nambour Woolies had got away; And had joined the wild street trolleys, it was nowhere to be found, And all the trolley boys had gathered to the fray....

Australia Day Plea Evan Elpus

Big Bad Poo Mark Feldman

This poem/song was the deliberate act of a very sick, sad, perverse mind at 3.00 AM in the morning on a very dark night. An equally perverted friend who shall remain nameless at this point in time had inspired it and asked me to complete the song as a joke. Unfortunately for the general public, I did complete the song and have performed it by request at various comedy venues. To my complete shocked surprise and horror, it has become a popular item on the agenda. I include it here so that maybe some others can learn it and perform it and save my singing voice for the lower bowels of anonymity where it belongs.

The Sunday Mass-Acre (Ex Top Ten) Mark Feldman

I was asked to write a poem to mark the 70th anniversary of the Catholic Church in my old home town of Woodford. I decided that I would approach it in a different manner than using purely historical facts. After all, the truth can get in the way of a darn good story. After thinking back over some of the many incidents which have occurred over the years in this friendly little country parish, I ad-libbed a bit, chucked in a small dose of poetic license, and produced "The Sunday Mass-acre," which was published in the celebratory book of the church's anniversary. So far, I haven't been excommunicated. So far...
