Whatever you do, don't touch yourself down there,
And if you want to know something, ask me,
Or if I'm not available, a prayer;
For God's sake don't ask Uncle Dorothy.
-- Sir Don Betjeman
The above poem comes from John Clarke's landmark collection, The Even More Complete Book of Australian Verse.
Up until Clarke's discoveries, many poets were thought to be foreign. It is now known that the centre of world literature is, of course, Australia.
Sir Don Betjeman represented Victoria in cricket, tennis, golf and car-spotting. He wrote the Shell Guide for Victorian Motorists. He worked in television during the 1960s and released the names of every architect employed on the Albury-Wodonga Development project. He lived in Malvern and was King of Moomba in 1972.
