Let me not to the carriage of new enterprise
Warn caution o’er the fickleness of fate
Innovators screw their courage, seek the prize -
To bring DR, like NBN, to every gate.
Berlin, Paris, Suva and Auckland,
The global DR movement gathers pace
Can we, once pioneers, match this stout band?
Yes – though girt by sea we’re still in the race
For from Adelaide’s fair Torrens in the glade,
Fair Ali’s laid the ground with worthy toil
Full wondrous labours - DR’s handsome maid
Will spread Shawmed to all of national soil
Soon arb-med, med-arb, determination pure,
Will essay forth from SA’s fertile Shaw.
