Aussies good?


Aussies struggle with Jesus’
parable cause they don’t see
what’s special about the Samaritan.

His name’s Brian
and he’ll jump the fence at the sniff
of pouring a driveway.

If you ask him why:
‘Orhhhh cause the beers’ll taste better when the shadows cast across.’

An’ there’s Debbie cooking extra
dinners for that couple on the street
just brought home a new bundle.

Russel fills a van
with bread to feed the dark alleys.
He’ll be home at two.

“We’ve got a room downstairs if you want it
it’s not legal height but there’s a bed and a toilet.”

So when water filled houses
through the state
every neighbour rolled up
sleeves. 

Dave filled his 80series
with bread, milk ‘n tea. Drove over
Mt Glorious to get through to Coominya.

Neville found an old lady –
her house in Fairfield
leaking mud.

Joanne washed
walls
with degreaser.

Trev finished his shift
at Roma St Fire station –
then organised teams in Rocklea

Jesse dried out photos.
Bazza offered his bobcat.

Deanna hiked
drinks and biscuits in her back pack
giving out smoko.

Scouts cooked snags on bread.
Handing out cold ones.

Jen couldn’t be there… gave
up new shoes to give money.
