Darwin, Kakadu and Humpty Doo Poems and Wordplay

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. Thanks to Quentin for his debut blog post. He did of course make one mistake, calling Andy Wolfhol ‘Andy Warhol‘, but not a bad start for our new film correspondent. Great news for Amazon Prime members in the UK, Germany and France, because they can now borrow Kindle books, and that includes Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps. So we thought we’d celebrate with another thrilling episode of our fave werewolf travelling Australia to the Wizard of Oz theme book.

This absolutely fabulous hilarious episode continues on from the last one through BOGOL link, but has no relevance to the end of the book. It does perhaps announce the beginning of poetic prevalence, with two poems in one posting for the first time. The book ended up with seventy poems. Here it is:

I enquired if they knew of a nice southerly
journey. Darwin whistled thoroughly
recommending visiting Jabiru
in the centre of Kakadu
so we travelled there
with the pair.
Do try the bread, said Humpty Doo,
so I had a sarnie, and Bonzo had two.

After eating and saying our goodbyes, Darwin and Humpty left to look for new species, while we continued south.

It didn’t take us long to reach Nitmiluk again. We checked out our favourite boozer, The One More Before I Croak, which had a hop going on. There was a poster above the bar advertising an alligator eliminator fight at the No Handbags bar, so after a drink we checked it out. And water fight it was, with Freshwater Frank beating Saltwater Stan in what could not be described as a toothless tussle.

Kathy and Baloo Wonder if Nitmiluk is too Good to be True

With a little time to spare, we returned to the cheap sheep shop. A koala called Kathy from Katherine and a man called Baloo from Manbulloo were getting BOGOL jumpers knitted.

They thought the deal was too good to be true,
but were reassured after we showed them our two,
and informed them of our luck in meeting Humpty Doo
and whistler duck Darwin in Kakadu.

When we told them we were following the dust sandy path south, Kathy dropped her new jumper. Baloo picked it up for her, before warning us we might need more luck if we were heading that way, as they’d heard it had become quite hellish in the outback.
