A Bit of Strine!

Out of my element I try
To capture new thoughts on the fly
Weird words and phrases glide on past
An interesting language task.

On chilly days one ”rugs up” well
You’re “daggy” when your dress sense’s hell
What happens in a “Boom Boom” room?
And may a “Happy Place” come soon!

Something that the jet set do
“Trailer Royalty” is new
The wealthy with smart mobile homes -
Mixed metaphor with overtones.

But the phrase that really takes the cake
Is Bondi surfers on the make
Who parade in trunks where all is seen
“Budgy Smugglers” reign supreme!
