Australians are witty, ironic and humorous…much of their poetry ends with a grin; Their virtues are many, their verses are numerous – so we gathered them up and we put the best ion; Parodies, ballads and strange confrontations…snippets and couplets and good humored curses; Ludicrous antics, absurd situations – one hundred years of our best comic verses; Read them alone, or read them in tandem, read them outdooors in your sweater and scarf – read them in order or read them at random, but read them, dear reader, and have a good laugh!
