The Coorong In Climate Change (1 Viewer)

In the bare lands of saltpans where the brown Murray flow
Where few creatures live and only saltbush grow
Where Australia's First people lived in the Dreamtime
Long before the first book was written and the birth of rhyme
On this ancient Land Climate Change has taken toll
Too late for the Coorong now damage control
The saltpans growing bigger saltbush everywhere
The Coorong more drought stricken and drier since I last was there
The creeks that used to feed the Murray are lifeless and dry
And the sun like a furnace blaze in the blue sky
Apart from the saltbush the Coorong looks bare
And there's not enough of grass here for to feed a hare
Where the first Australians lived and hunted and had their Corroborees
Only dry lakes, dry creeks and saltpans and stunted dead trees.
