    From my friend Noel L’Orange, the Poet Laureate of Mullumbimby:

    AUSTRALIANS ALL LET US SORT OF REJOICE A BIT,
    FOR WE ARE YOUNG THOUGH A LOT OF US ARE GETTING BIT LONG IN THE TOOTH NOW, AND FREE MORE OR LESS,
    WITH GOLDEN SOIL WELL MOST OF IT’S SAND ACTUALLY,
    AND WEALTH FOR TOIL UNTIL WE WIN LOTTO,
    OUR HOME IS GIRT BY AKA THE BLEEDING OBVIOUS SEA,
    OUR LAND ABOUNDS IN NATURE’S GIFTS THAT WE’RE DOING OUR BEST TO TRASH AS FAST AS POSSIBLE,
    OF BEAUTY RICH AND INCREASINGLY BLOODY RARE,
    IN HISTORY’S PAGE SO LONG AS WE CAN READ IT,
    AT EVERY STAGE MAINTAIN THE RAGE,
    ADVANCE AUSTRALIA WHERE?
    THE EMPERORS HAVE STOLE OUR CLOTHES,
    ADVANCE AUSTRALIA BARE!

    “…the arrival of Captain James Cook in Australia in April 1770, and his departure from Plymouth in August 1978.”
    1978. Wow, did he use a Tardis or a De Lorean? 🙂
