Kangaroo, from Jim's archive

In speaking to a kangaroo
always try to be polite
Avoid any mention of a stew
or you’ll end up in a fight.
For roos are very sensitive
on the subject of their tails
and unless you’re very cautious,
they’ll rip out your entrails
. And if you should be fool enough
to mention roo tail soup
you’d better have a motor bike
or he’ll send you for a loop
and you’ll wind up in a gum tree
from a drop-kick by the bounder,
thinking on mature reflection
that your judgment could be sounder.

Jim's Kangaroo poem is a lot of fun Fran.
