Poem Title:  Stringy Bark And Green Hide

Poem Category:  Humerous/ Funny Poems

Poet:  Anonymous

Poet Biography: 
There are surprisingly many good poems which are anonymous. These can be anonymous (unknown writer) for a variety of reasons and rarely impact upon their worth as a poem.



Poem: 
I sing of a commodity, it's one that will not fail yer,
I mean the common oddity, the mainstay of Australia;
Gold it is a precious thing, for commerce it increases,
But stringy bark and green hide, can beat it all to pieces.
Stringy bark and green hide, that will never fail yer!
Stringy bark and green hide, the mainstay of Australia.

If you travel on the road, and chance to stick in Bargo,
To avoid a bad capsise, you must unload your cargo;
For to pull a dray about, I do not see the force on,
Take a bit of green hide, and hook another horse on.

Stringy bark and green hide, that will never fail yer!
Stringy bark and green hide, the mainstay of Australia.

If you chance to take a dray, and break your leader's traces,
Get a bit of green hide, to mend the broken places.
Green hide is a useful thing all that you require;
But stringy bark's another thing when you want a fire.


Stringy bark and green hide, that will never fail yer!
Stringy bark and green hide, the mainstay of Australia.
If you want to build a hut, to keep out wind and weather,
Stringy bark will make it snug, and keep it well together;
Green hide, if it's used by you, will make it all the stronger,
For if you tie it with green hide, its sure to last the longer.

Stringy bark and green hide, that will never fail yer!
Stringy bark and green hide, the mainstay of Australia.

New chums to this golden land, never dream of failure,
Whilst you've got such useful things as these in fair Australia;
For stringy bark and green hide will never, never fail you,
Stringy bark and green hide is the mainstay of Australia.

Stringy bark and green hide, that will never fail yer!
Stringy bark and green hide, the mainstay of Australia.
