In Australia, they are blessed to have an abundant wealth of talented story tellers through whom future
generations can learn of their history and 21st century lifestyle. Here is a classic example:

A Poem about Tomatoes

I know a young Muslim whose name is Jim,
I really love throwing tomatoes at him,
Tomatoes are soft and don't hurt the skin,
But these f*ckers do, because they're still in the tin.

The warmth and heart wrenching simplicity of Australian bush poetry can
bring a tear to the eye.
