Best Poem of Keith Johnson

Ode To An Australian Magpie

My head aches and throbbing numbness pains
My sense, as though of Bundy I had drunk
As I drag my bike out from the drains
One minute past where pavement-wards had sunk;
Tis through disdain of my unhappiness

In some invidious lees
Of eucalypts and shadows numberless,
Chortle with glee in full-throttled ease...

O for a draught of Fosters! That hath been
Cool'd a long age in the deep-delved earth
Tasting of hops with a dark tan sheen,
Garden bars, cask ...
