Drought Times

Posted Wednesday 9th June 2010 at 01:56 by Francis Duggan
The creek that once flowed from the hills it's babble has died
Out there in the sparsely treed brown countryside
The drought ravaged paddocks are bare brown and dry
And not one sign of rain in the sunny Autumn sky
Financially for the farmer another bad year
At a cheap price he sold off most of his cattle and sheep animals he had bought in dear
Due to a shortage of grass and the increased price of hay
Most of his animals he had to sell at a financial loss that does seem sad to say
Huge colonies of ants crawl on the sun baked ground
In drought ravaged paddocks insects in numbers abound
The overgrazed paddocks bare looking and brown
Of the countryside close to the old country town
Not even a litre of water in any roadside drain
And in the sunny sky not any sign of rain.
