All Ashore! - Poem by Henry Lawson

The rattling ‘donkey’ ceases,
The bell says we must part,
You long slab of good-nature,
And poetry and art!

We’ll miss your smile in Sydney,
We’ll miss your care-free air;
Where care-free airs are needed
And grins are growing rare,

Good Health! Good pay! Good liquor,
And good pals, night and day,
Good morning and good evening –
God bless you, Hugh McCrae!
