Ode to the Southern Cross

by Ian "Macca" MacKensie

Here, my friends is a wonderful tale,
Of the Southern Cross Motor Inn at Berridale
A place where friendship fills the air,
And service is given beyond compare

In Banjo's country near the Snowy River,
Your hosts, the Selman's, will always deliver
A Standard of service unknown to some,
For the Southern Cross is number one

The snow, the views, the lake, the fishing,
Will have each guest dreaming and wishing
That time could stand still for ever more,
In this pristine paradise, you'll surely adore.
