Birds of Other Feather by C.J. Dennis

A 720ft. talkie film of the Australian Lyre Bird in its natural surroundings has been produced by the Commonwealth Cinematograph Branch after three years of patient effort.

To avoid confusion
Amongst the untaught,
And for the information of the punning dunce,
Let it be stated at once
That the item above is not fraught
With any political allusion.
If it were --
Well, my dear sir!
I mean to say --
Three years? Why a single day
Would suffice to complete
Several thousand feet.
