Introduction

The bushman’s bus is a narrative poem borne out of a quick and simple experimental process.

I randomly chose words and shaped them into a story about Bushmen travelling on a bus form the back of Burke (Australia) to Burma (Myanmar)

Want to step on board? Let’s go then….

The Bushman’s Bus

Billows of dust

bellow glaringly

as the bus

filled with bushmen

dressed in their burnooses

travel along

the bilious roads

leading from

the back of Burke

to the bustling markets

of Burma


Bus windows frame

the hidden burglar’s burgs

lined with bunya trees

scattered alongside

bulging bustees



Bursting here and there

are burbles

from bustling bull frogs

hiding bountifully

in the dried out

butchered creek beds.


The Bushmen are seeking

lives as buckshee buttles.

The Bushmen persevere

with the hope of buckbeans

and begging Buddhist Monks.

The Bushmen’s’ silence

cries the tenacity

of a bull dog

latched onto

a meaty bone.


Bushmen, we wish you

a buttercream life.

The Bushman's Bus makes me feel

      This poem also brought in new words into my world. I, too, enjoyed the journey of the imagination. Many thanks Gypsy Rose.

      This poem was a purely imaginative piece Elijah. It was a experimental in nature. Peace and Happiness to You today.

      Interesting reading although I can't connect, I suppose, because I've never been in any such situation.
