A digger and his Sheila*

Here's an interesting World War II poem written in exaggerated, but authentically tiresome, Australian English.


*  "Digger," or "dig," was the First and Second World War term for an Australian soldier, and has been used by Australians where an American would say "guy" and as a form of address. "Sheila" ("woman") should be adopted into everyone's vernacular.
