      Scott, They're both well documented. phone the Library of the Imperial War Museum in London if you can afford it! Or is there an Australian equivalent? There are now several books on WW1 poets, also ... more

    Allan, I will get my free speech elsewhere.
    Don't like the residents on this forum.
    Let them discuss the poetry of poets, since they don't have any of their own worth discussing.

    the cowboy lit his pipe
    and took a draw
    the baddy shot him dead
    he thought he went for his gun

    the bull rode the cowboy
    and all the gals cheered

    ...and my cynical self defines it as 'the sentimental homesickness of those who can't wait to get away from it'. As in Friday Kilt Night in Scots Canadian hotels...not unknown in Kilburn and Merseyside pubs either.

    When I was young, let's say the 1930s, there were simple songs as of cowboys addressing their faithful horse, the 'lonesome prairee', under the light of the silvery moon, over Idaho, Nebrasky, you name it, the odd covered wagon ('Roll along, covered wagon, roll along, take me back to the place where I was born...'etc. And I guess they'd sing them too. Certainly in films as they sat by the fire's glow...Early Rawhide, early Nashville?

    er, that reminds me, what were we talking about before I was asked to queue for the gas oven?

    In Irish slang the word ´cannister´ is used to describe an idiot.
