Ode to Fitzroy

Oh? Fitzroy.
You live in the coolest part of town,
gushed the She-Millennial.
Actually, it was hip
When I moved here,

I said,
25 years ago,
When thought I'd
Just discovered it,
Which made the people laugh
Who discovered it
Before me.

And those,
before them.
Fitzroy has always been cool,

the first suburb,
and the smallest
with Brothels,
and Booze,
and Vice, it was a brewing

The poor
The down trodden
Aboriginals, Australia's first fellas
Hippies
Artists
Intellectuals, so amusing
DINKS
Yuppies
Hipsters, coffee brewing
And the great big

rainbow melting pot.
