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!
