The poet's breakfast has become an integral part of Rodeo Week and this year's event did not disappoint.
Around 60 people came to the Terrace Gardens last Thursday to hear local poets recite theirs - and others - poetry.
The Zonta Club of Mount Isa organise the breakfast to help them raise vital funds to support women's shelters in Mount Isa, as president Cheryl Brosnan said.
Cloncurry's own poet laureate Keith Douglas Jr was master of ceremonies as usual and looked the part decked out in his Akubra and Driza-Bone.
He kept the show going with amusing anecdotes and great poems of his own.
James Coghlan returned after an absence with a couple of funny poems as well as favourites from previous years Veronica Griffin and Val Brown.
The editor of the North West Star also returned with some unintelligible Irish gibberish.
