An Australian Whine

Some statistics shock and make you think
Take the case of those who drive and drink
According to the News* I read
South Australia’s face is red!

Proud of their “Free Settler” name,
This wine-growing State can claim
A heritage rich and diverse
Who now find that they come first

In terms of alcohol consumed
Pro capita; it is assumed
They belie their epithet to date
As Australia’s driest State!

*In The Advertiser - Adelaide’s daily newspaper
