National Poetry Month (27/30): In a Sunburned Country in 5-7-5

In a Sunburned Country by Bill Bryson

Australia houses
The world’s deadliest spiders
AND snakes. No thanks, mates!

(Note, I pronounce it “Aus-trail-ya” not “Aus-trail-i-ya.”  Just so’s you know.  Though, in real life, I just call it “Oz,” because my brother-in-law is from there and he talks funny like that.  By the way, this book is hilarious.)

    Is it venomous?
    No? Not a true Ocker, then.
    (Fosters cures venom.)
