Poet’s Corner: Hit Life For Six


Things were not going well
For a bloke that I know.
He’d had a bad run
And he wanted to go.

So he shouldered arms
In the innings called life.
Kicked over his stumps
When it went a bit wide.

He blocked his own shot
On his way to the rim.
Got fouled out of life
Which was quite fine by him.

Kicked it out of bounds
From directly in front.
Went the banana,
Shoulda gone a drop punt!

If life gets too hard,
Don’t leave your crease.
Talk to someone who’ll listen
Help you find some peace.

Sort yourself out.
Get yourself fixed.
Then when they steam in,

Call Lifeline’s 24 hour crisis line 13 11 14 anytime you need help.
