GOLD RUSH ONOMATOPOEIA

a poem by Lee Emmett, Australia - poetry writer, author, poet

washing gravelly-stones, specks-flecks scans
rattles, sloshes, fossicker jostles as he passes ...
rinsing gold from their clanging metal-cans
panners yakkety-yak like rackety jackasses

streams trickle, babble-bubble, spill into rivers
slashing-bush, chipping-rocks sweat the diggers
gurgling-gin and swigging-rum attack their livers
but doh-see-doh and skip-to-lou cheer Irish-jiggers
