Classic Australian pose

Revised poem from the other day:

on a stockyard fence
a black crow steps
gingerly toward
a chirping chittering
whose lifelong mate
skips and hops
in the waterfall
of a sprinkler set
to settle the dust.

a five year old
Ngallagunda boy
weilds a whip
shortened for him -
still he makes it crack
lightning and thunder
among the dust of
a hundred bulls.
