HISTORY:
TOOLE-BE-WONG MOUNTAIN
A poem by Dusty Wolfe When I was a lad up at old Kalorama
The hills rolled away in a vast panorama
No brick veneer mansions their beauty did sully
Along the bush track to the Sassafras Gully.
I heard all around me the lyrebirds singing
On Dandenong mountain their voices went ringing
And wattle clad slopes were a mass of gold blossom
The haunt of the wallaby, whipbird and possum.
Beneath the great trees I could wander for hours
And never see mansions or great TV towers
While often I stared at a vision entrancing --
The mystical sight of the lyrebirds dancing.
And never in all my dreamiest dreaming
Thought I that man's planning and plotting and scheming
Could little by little the great mountain plunder
And sweep the great trees of the forest asunder.

On Toole-be-wong mountain a soft wind is sighing
Across the top spur where the great trees are lying
The monarchs that fell in the 'thirtynine fires
That never saw concrete or S.E.C. wires.
The spinebills of Toole-be-wong sip the sweet honey
Not knowing of man and his schemes to make money
And gentle-eyed lyrebirds sing without worry
Where wallabies browse without tension or hurry.

But from the Don valley comes clanking and humming --
The noise of the chainsaws and bulldozers coming
As man in his greed on the mountain advances
To subdivide land where the lyrebird dances;
To bulldoze the trees where the soft wind is blowing;
And Toole-be-wong sleeps in the mists, never knowing
That concrete and wires and brick veneer houses
Will stand in the place where the wallaby browses.

ODE TO TRIPLE HHH


Triple HHH is a poet,
Even though he didn't know it.
That's because his feet are Longfellows.

Nope, he didn't write that neither. Mostly about your cats and streetcars and iguanas and such.

Ya know, it seems like every single time that I desire a streetcar, this dang cat and iguana start playin' up on my hot tin roof...at NIGHT no less! I dunno, but I think 'Bob' has somethin' to do with it.

Doubt'r. Maybe back before his sweet bird of youth went on ahead and flew away onnim, but since the Alzheimer's set in I doubt he could cypher up how to do'r.

BUMP As I found myself feeling a bit down after last night's RAW, I thought I would drag out something old (new to me) to brighten things up 'til the CAC stuff starts coming in. Poetry that stands the test of time...well nine years, anyways!
