Australian bush poetry

We are blessed in Australia to have such an abundant wealth of talented story tellers 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**kers do, ‘cos they're still in the tin.
 
The warmth and heart wrenching simplicity of Australian bush poetry can bring a tear to the eye.
