Dispatches from the wilds of Poetania – A Letter to America from 92,897 Australians

Dear America,
can you just, like, chill out?
Seriously, you used to be cool, 
back in the days of Empire, 
you were like our older brother 
that left home at fifteen, 
joined a rock band, 
and sent us post-cards from Vietnam 
(before it was a popular tourist destination) 
but now you’re just a middle-aged economist 
who cares way too much about petrol prices 
and not enough about Rock ‘n Roll 
and partying.
