An Ode to Laser Head Lance

Laser Head Lance is a slippery old cat
Lives in a world of shadows covered up by his hat

The one day the wind turned from breeze into gale
Blew up his hat like a boat under sail

Those secrets within did explode out his head
And the colour of his hands were a deep shade of red

His secrets revealed that he’d been quite bad
And the fallout was severe and the people were mad

Oh how the mighty have fallen and the proud do stumble
Now Laser Head Lance is humbler than humble

An Ode to Wavebeard Wally

He’s an old sailor chum and he always smells of fishes
His craft and his trade is the ocean and it’s dishes

He doesnt like to walk on the solid solid land
His boat is his home on the ocean oh so grand

Every day on the ocean has affected him just so
That the beard on his face has found a peculiar way to grow

These whiskers in question have formed into the shape of waves
And it’s not some parlour trick or the way that he shaves

He rocks the full wave beard and it’s pretty darn rad
That’s the story of Wavebeard Wally an ocean going lad

And Ode to Jolly Joel

Tropical island’s in the sun
That’s where Jolly Joel has some fun

Where palm trees rustle in the breeze
And that’s where there is no killer bees

Bees of the killer kind just aren’t cool
And if you encounter them while sitting by the pool

You should jump in the water and splash around
Maybe those bees won’t sting you and you won’t be found

I once saw this movie about a girl
Macaulay Culkin was stung and he began to swell

Those stinking bees got him really bad
Then he died and it was fully sad

So what you need to learn after you’ve had a little cry
Is to stay away from killer bees otherwise you might die

Barry the Magical Bison

An Ode to Barry the Magic Bison

This bison is big, this bison is great
He’s a really nice guy, he’ll be your mate

So this is the way the stories been told
Passed through time and history and generations of old

When young in his life while roaming the plain
He stumbled upon a rainbows tail

This rainbows tail contained a pot of gold
And it’s magical powers entered his soul

He transformed from brown to many a colour
And his magical powers increased in number

He could fly like a kite and climb like a goat
Run like the wind and float like a boat

He could buzz like a bee and sing like a bird
And he soon became the king of the herd

Blackbeard Santa with laser beams

An ode to BlackBeard Santa

With laser beams coming out of his eyes,
This Christmas you may be in for a Blackbeard Santa surprise

If you’ve been bad you’ll make him mad
If you’ve been nice you’ll get some chocolate slice

His laser beams are his most prominent feature
They stike the fear into every man and creature

A single short burst can liquify a cat
vaporize a goat or dissolve a rat

Explode a man and vanish a dog
Exterminate a pig and stupefy a frog

So please don’t make him mad
These powers of his are very rad

An Ode to Dracula Darrell

Dracula Darrell comes from a family
Of bloodsucking monsters ever so scary

He has the skill of shooting beams of energy
Outta his hands and into his enemy

These radiactive lasers, so mutant and deadly
Will vaporize anybody who appears unfriendly

A zap zap here and a zap zap there
My laser beams are gunna give you a scare

That’s what he sings when he’s zapping away
And his smile so deranged stays around all day

Lion Hat Leigh


© Mulga 2012, Lion Hat Leigh,Posca on Paper, 42 x 59 cm

An Ode to Lion Hat Leigh

Lion hat Leigh lives high in a tree
His Beard turned green, a sight to be seen

Because of his hat he’s chief of the tribe
He’s also very muscly, of this is do not lie

His hat was once a lion of the mountain kind
The taste of human flesh, it really did not mind

One night this lion it did pounce on Leigh
As he lay in his sleep he got bit on the knee

Then Leigh arose and battled this lion
Gave it a head butt and then it lay dying

He picked it up and put it on his head
Then lay back down to sleep in his bed

Harry the Headphone Hipster

This is a recent commission I completed.

An Ode to Harry the Headphone Hipster

Hipster Harry liked the song
That was sung from his beard
He listened in all day long
Until he turned so weird

His hair turned a tone of green
His nose a shade of yellow
His moustache curled towards the sky
And his eyes became all mellow

He floated in the cloud of buzz
That his DJ beard turned out
Thus became his magic facial fuzz
As colourful as a trout

Green and blue and blue and green
Like the colours of the sea
Orange, pink and yellow
And anything in between

Roll up your trousers
Grab some loafers
Grow that fringe all out
Don some over sized headphones
And do the hipster flout

The End

See you next time

Ned Kelly Was a Hipster

Did you know Ned Kelly was a hipster?

This drawing is based on a photo of him the day before his execution and I was struck by how fashionable he would look today. He would fit right in with the hipster vibe.
An Ode to Ned Kelly the Hipster Bushranger
A hipster was Ned Kelly
A notorious bushy ranger too
His favorite food was jelly
He rocked a hipster do
