Hi, it’s Greenygrey. We thought you’d be on the edge of your seat waiting to hear what our Life of Pi-style boat-load of biodiversity were up to, so here’s the next exciting episode of your favourite werewolf fantasy-travels Australia by Google maps Wizard of Oz themed comedy-satire book; now not the newest version, after the release of Oz the Great and Powerful.

This is the third of the Kangaroo Island to Tasmania tetralogy/quadrilogy epic poem(s), covering the King Island leg of the quintessential sea quest, and fifty-sixth chapter of the Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps.

We have another wonderful Werewolf of Oz werileak for you, with hot-off-the-press news that the fourth and final poem of the tetralogy/quadrilogy is planned for tomorrow!

56.  KING ISLAND HAS a SURPRISING AMOUNT OF INTEREST 

Boatry Poetry is a Form of Libertree

Row, row, row the wave
surface of Davy Jones’s grave
we could sit back and relax
as roaring forties cut us some slack
not trousers to wear
but no rowing despair
as the wind behaved as it should
you know they say ‘well, it would’
sailing us towards Tasmania
I don’t know how to explain to ya
we just sat back and played cards
as the boat ate up the salt yards
it wasn’t long ’til we reached King Island
eating a Pearshape Egg Lagoon Currie by hand
shocked to see a Sea Elephant in Surprise Bay
but it was a fitting finale to a Bungaree day.

Notes 

Pearshape, Egg Lagoon, Currie, Sea Elephant, Surprise Bay and Bungaree are all King Island places. As are all the place names in the next poem.
Davy Jones’s Locker – sailor slang for sea.
Roaring Forties – strong westerly winds in the southern hemisphere, especially between latitudes 40-49, which is where Tasmania is situated.
