As I lay splat on the grass at the Darebin Parklands,
taken out by an overweight, black Labrador,
with a surprising turn of speed,
I remembered this graffiti of an angry man seeing stars
that I had taken earlier in my walk!
|Graffiti at Darebin Creek|
We were having a lovely walk along the Darebin Creek
admiring the bush countryside, only 7km from the city centre.
The Crazy Poodle and I taking full advantage of a break in the clouds.
It had been a difficult week for dog walks,
every time we went out
Mutt and I came back like drowned rats!

Fat Lab had obviously not got out much either
I didn't even see him coming!
Crazy Poodle sensed his lumbering arrival,
and in his usual brave state, cowered behind my legs.
Fat Lab went straight through me.
I wish I'd managed to do a perfect triple ludz
But I didn't.

He hit me right at
the point where I had spent the past four weeks
having physiotherapy on my knee.
My physio will love me, I thought! $$$$$$$$$$$
The two dogs took off
leaving me face down in the mud.
Crazy poodle came back sheepish...
|Winter in Darebin Parklands|
I figured Fat Lab was notorious in the park
why else would there be an angry man seeing stars?
I wished I'd had a can of spray paint with me
I'd have added a women seeing stars!!
