‘Twas Mulga bill from Eaglehawk that caught the cycling craze,
He turned away the good old horse that served him many days
He dressed himself in cycling clothes resplendent to be seen
He hurried off to town and bought a shining new machine.”
The first thing we did in Winton was – we cycled around town. Then we got home and walked over to the camp kitchen. We first ate tomato soup and a roast then, out on to the stage came MELANIE HALL Australia’s best female bush poet with her partner Susan Carcary! It was a hilarious but in the end we got to go up and peform a brilliant play to a poem. Axo100 was a sheila and I was a redback spider who had to bite him on the bottom.
We also did the poem of “An Arrow in the Throat” by Spike Milligan. Here is the video of it.
After that we all got inspired to learn bush poetry. Axo1000 learned “The Bush Christening”. It’s very funny. I learned “Mulga Bill’s Bicycle.” And we said them under the stars at the Devil’s Marbles.
