The Fellow From Yambuk

Beside him big men do look physically small
The fellow from Yambuk broad shouldered and tall
In the City of Warrnambool where he has lived for many a year
A man even the local bullies respect and fear

A fellow who never has that much to say
He is not a bully or was never that way
But anyone who has messed with him has hit the ground
And the word of how strong he is has got around

With fuzzy dark beard and long hair dark as a crow
The colossus from Yambuk to anger may be slow
But those who have picked on him have come to realize
That to anger him on their behalf not very wise

At twenty six years in the prime of his life
The fellow from Yambuk has two young daughters and a wife
One who with his life his family would defend
Yet in Warrnambool one never short of a friend

Twenty five kilometers from where he went to Primary school
The strongest and biggest man in Warrnambool
The fellow from Yambuk broad shouldered and tall
Beside him big men do look physically small.
