Canberra Can

(or caning Canberra)

invoke the cold in one syllable
tremble a tax through cheating bodies
and gash government to the unfamiliar eye

and like old Joe shouting “ never Canberra,
avoid that Sunday Church mate! ”
makes his forced collection in absentia
spiting out the capital cost
while walking an un-kept pavement
