Places I Been


Once upon a time I was at Large.

Didn’t stay long -

them police boys they caught up with me,

took me into Custody,

said they’d bring me to Justice.

First they introduced me to my smart-man friend with the suit and tie.

Said he was a loyer

Though I didn’t see nothing much loyal about him.

He said let him do the talking, because my future was in Jeopardy.

I told him I didn’t want to live there, it’s too far from me kids.

He said to be serious because my kids life was at Stake.

Buggered if I know why he kept wanting to split me family up.


They put me in a cell with a few other blokes -

Criminal types.

Then we all went to court

The other loyer was pointing his finger

saying how me and those blokes were in Cahoots.

Not only that, but I was in Charge

And I was in Telligent.

How could I have been in all those places, when really I was in Nocent?

Never even been to Telligent.


The judge fell for it though.

He took me to Task,

said I should be in Carcerated

so he sent me to prison at Once.

That’s maximum security.

Now I dream of the blue sky and the green grass and me two kids.

I’m in Despair. 


  1. Um. This is sad :(
    Who is this about?

    1. It's not about anybody that I know, though maybe one day I'll meet him.

  2. It sounds like David Wenham's character from "get tin' Square" (the funniest Oz film ever made
