Letters to the Editor
I Can Out-amble Howard!
Howard's preamble on mateship did not go far enough! I have therefore decided to summit this preamble for consideration...
We the inhabitants of this land
bonded and woven by the mateship of
blokes and sheilas, meat pies and Holden cars
Commonwealth Bank and Telstra shares
And from countries near and far
generation upon generation
guided here with hope in God
to this land of sun and surf
cossies and mozzies, sunnies and minis
Free to be proud of the great Aussie salute
to our pollies and dollies, dagos and nimbies
and in this spirit we commit ourselves
and the generations to come
to this great island continent and nation
Hey Eds: what about a competition to help Howard improve his mateship preamble!
Eds Reply: Why not - give us your preamble. We'll think of a prize after Easter!
