Poetry Recital on Channel 7’s Sunrise

Mulga on sunrise with beards

I had the opportunity to recite a poem on Channel 7’s Sunrise show as part of the Beard Season launch.

Here is the link to the video.

Check out Beard  Season’s website.

This is the poem I recited

An Ode to Beard Season

Hey ho let’s gather round
For a word on beards and advice so sound

This wondrous thing that we call the beard
Should not be abhorred, it should not be feared

It should be embraced like a soft teddy bear
This thing is precious, this blanket of hair

It has the power to save your life
And the skill to keep you from harm and strife

I like to think a beard is more than just fun
It’s also protective armour from the sun

In my final remarks I do implore
Go have a skin check lest ye hit the floor

Spout Trunk Sammy

Spout Trunk Sammy by Mulga the Artist

This is Spout Trunk Sammy, he is currently residing at M2 Gallery as part of the Art in Motion exhibition open this weekend.

An Ode to Spout Trunk Sammy

His trunk is powerful and when used right
He always wins any water fight

His skin has a weird orange hue
From eating many carrots, his favourite food

He’s the only Pachyderm in the herd
To sport a beard and not look absurd

Because of this he is the leader
The alpha male, the big chief breeder

The key points that we can take from this
Is that growing a beard is not amiss

Everyone will know that you are a man
And not a woman who is called Sam

An Ode to Flame Head Fred

Flame Head Fred walks around
With a fire on his head above his frown

Why is it there? no one really knows
One things for sure it scares his foes

It’s size increases when his thoughts grow wild
This occurs quite often as this ape’s not mild

Known for breakdancing of which he is skilled
When he dances in the club all the girls are thrilled

Now you know all about Flame Head Fred
This is his story and that’s what I said

An Ode to Featherbone the Brave

Born in the mountains was Featherbone the Brave
He was stolen by poachers when very young in age

Taken from his home and sold to a zoo
All this calamity turned him a purply hue

When he reached adolescence he decided to escape
So he busted outta his cage while wearing a cape

He travelled the land far and wide
And settled with a native American Indian tribe

He rode a horse and slept in a cave
No longer known as Bob but Featherbone the Brave

Anton the Aztec Goat

An Ode to Anton the Aztec Goat

A goat called Anton rowed his boat
Every day around the castle in the moat

And in that boat he wore a coat
And its patterns were great, he was known to gloat

“In the Incas I obtained my patterned coat”
In his daily journal is what he wrote

The coat was payment made in full
For head-butting one rampaging bull

He butted the bull and it ran away
And he saved all the village folk on that day

But that was a long time in the past
And now he can’t even run that fast

His time is now spent as a goat in a boat
Paddling in a moat while wearing a coat

It might seem silly but it floats his boat
That Anton the Goat who’s known to gloat

An Ode to Smokey Joe the Hipster

I would like you to meet Mr Smokey Joe
If it’s a hipster your after he’s the guy to know

He rolls his own durries and wears a big coat
And like a duck to water he’s not one to gloat

He knows the cool bands before they exist
And that’s cooler than hip if your getting my gist

But his claim to glory and hipster crown
Is the growth on his face, his beard so brown

Without this feature he would cease to exist
Be but a vapour of air or a patch of mist

It signifies that he is the dominant man
Because without the beard he’s probably bland

So the lesson to learn and heed this time
And the reason for this here hipster ryhme

Is that growing a beard could be your best move
Get you outta your funk and into the groove

This beard could become your very best feature
And transform you into a hairy masculine creature

I was commissioned to paint this for a lucky gentlemen’s birthday present.

Buy a print of this here.

An Ode to Ole Pointy Beard Pete

Ole Pointy Beard Pete loves his single fin stick
It goes super fast and rides real slick

He always runs swiftly towards the ocean
As if he is strengthened by some magical potion

His beard trails behind like a bushy tail
And sometimes he uses it as a sail

He’s a surf hunter adventure man
He’s surfed in Alaska and even Iran

He once rode a wave onto the back of a whale
Then the whale got angry and flicked it’s tail

That was the best darn ride Ole Pete ever had
And when he remembers that day it always makes him glad

Bearded Elvis

Today marks the day 56 years ago that Elvis’s debut album, “Elvis Presley” was released.

I drew a picture of him with a sweet beard.

You can buy a print of this artwork here.

An Ode to Bearded Elvis

Most geezers think Elvis aint alive
But the truth is he’s just in disguise

I saw him the other day cruising down the street
He had a beard so spectacular and long and neat

Turns out he’s been hiding away
Behind his beard and bales of hay

All those many, many moons ago
He grew tired of the crowds and the Elvis show

So he pretended to die and began to grow a mo
Then the mo became a goatee that hung so low

Then came the chops and a full beard in time
Thus concludes this story and bearded Elvis rhyme

I drew Terry the Tiger for a Le QC x Mulga collab. You can buy Terry on tees and jumpers at http://quaycollective.myshopify.com/collections/le-qc

An Ode to Terry the Tiger

Terry the Tiger was terrrific indeed
Of this single fact all the animals agreed

He ruled the jungle like a stripey king
Sometimes he would lounge, sometimes he would sing

Everywhere he went he wore his dazzling coat
And when he crossed the river he travelled by boat

He made his castle high in the trees
And he ate of the honey produced by bees

He was the finest specimen in all the land
And he fronted the best jungle rock band

They played every Saturday at the Jungle Pub
And chilled out after in the jungle hot tub

Bear Hat Bob

An Ode to Bear Hat Bob

Bear Hat Bob is an outdoors guy
At home in the mountains and under the sky

He walks around with his sunglasses pink
Even at night it seems odd you might think

Bart the Bear was his very best friend
The wilderness they journeyed from end to end

One day in the spring they came across a river
The water was cold it made them shiver

They attempted to cross on a fallen tree
But Bart fell into that freezing stream

He couldn’t swim so he drowned to death
He had breathed his last, his very last breath

Bob was so sad and he cried for week
He cried in the day and he cried in his sleep

To remember his friend, the Bear called Bart
Bob wore him as a hat and now they’re never apart

An Ode to Trevor Trumpet Face

He has big elephant ears and a trunk for a nose
He has a trumpet on his face and it looks like a hose

With every sneeze his big trumpet sounds
And the largeness of the volume knows no bounds

It scares away all the birds in the trees
That’s exactly what happens every time he does a sneeze

Laser Head Lance

Laser Head Lance by Mulga the Artist

The original Laser Head Lance painting is available for sale in Platform72 Gallery, Oxford Street, Sydney

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
