Produced by Blue Trumpet for Radio 2RRR, Jove’s Pearls is a collection of verse 'chiefly in the Australian vernacular' by Jovial Mark ... painter, poet, dilettante, and ratbag, hailing from the deep south of South Australia...
But as the evening wound its way on
The local crowd grew restless
He was singing them a evil song
And the old man’s words were breathless
We were all good democratic folk
And hated what had come to pass
So we grabbed the fellow by the scruff of the neck
And kicked him out on his arse!
Music featured in the poem comes from 'сереньёвый туман'.
