Jump in back, you kids
up in back o’ ute, under tarp.
Quiet now,       like little
tadpoles  –  no, not wrigglers!
Police might catch us.
Too many tadpoles
no seat belts.

OK,     all out!
Here – take them strings and bait.
Watch us catch them
yabbies in channel
Wall Flat channel.
Now you kids!

Jimmy, you got some?
Yeahs, three.        But need thirteen.
Promised thirteen
old ladies.   Yabbies been ordered.
Saving biggest but
for my grandmother!

You kids done all right
today.       Better than
makin’ trouble in town, ana?
Trouble is,        gove’nment filling
them channels soon.
No yabbies then,               eh kids?
