My final effort is my shortest. For my readers who are non-Australian – you’ll have to google the title – it’s too complicated. (U.S. – we’ve never forgiven you!)

Suffice to say that Phar Lap’s a (deceased) racehorse whose body parts are distributed widely.

 

Phar Lap.

 

Canberra has a heart.

Melbourne has a hide.

But Wellington

has the skellington.

 

 

 

Thanks to everyone who has read and commented on my poems over the last 30 days & special thanks to the NaPoWriMo participants, many of whom have inspired my work.

  1. Well done Rob. Like Phar Lap, you’ve raced across the line.Probably the first napowrimo finisher in the world given timezones. Good to finish with a whoop and a laugh.
