One-armed Bandits

There’s a copper in the gutter
taking photographs of speed.
And there’s others take advantage
of camouflage from trees.

Stripping points and dollars
from passers passing by.
One armed bandit industry.
Preying on the need to drive.

Numbers are increasing
cross the length and breadth,
of Australia’s roadways,
coppers put ’em to the test.

Checking registration,
speed and alcoholic breaths
one armed bandit industry
Financed by the fines.
