Victoria, Australia Literary Nonsense Poem

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. It’s that end of the weekend time of the week, so it’s time for the second episode of Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps. This is another quick travel episode/chapter told in a literary nonsense poem, eating up the Victorian miles before the Kerang-Kerrang epic thirteen chapters/episodes on the border with New South Wales.

Talking of Oz and 13, congratulations to the British and Irish Lions for their first test win against the Australian Wallabies, and Black Sabbath for their new album titled 13 reaching #1 in several countries, including U.K., U.S.A., Canada and Germany.

Chapter 80.  North Victoria Fast Blast 

Sizzling progress in the morning
eating up the miles from day’s dawning.
Flat out for hours, apart from the sharp bends
by noon we’d reached Kangaroo Flat north ends.
Skipped straight through for a meeting at Eaglehawk
with a California Gully who liked to talk.
We wondered if Terrick Terrick,
was named after Terrence Malick?
Pyramid Hill pointed to Kow Swamp
where we were in need of a Wee Wee Rup,
and then it was north-west to Kerang
reminding us of a rock magazine called Kerrang.

Poem of Spider, Cow, Bee, Money, Society Analogy

The Tree of Life
Image via Wikipedia
Marc Latham saw Terrence Malick‘s Tree of Life yesterday at the Leeds Light Vue Cinema, where it is still showing, and totally recommends it for the best cinematic experience of the year (millennium?), and an all-encompassing philosophy that he’s also been searching for over the last few years, including on this site, but admits he doesn’t completely know what the film is about yet.  He’s off to find out on the web soon…if there is a complete rationale!
Anyway, his latest poem is more stuck in the scandals of British society over recent years, although Malick has also investigated the duality of humanity in previous films, and the latest a little, and was doing this sort of thing a long time before Latham.
