The Fires In Victoria

The fires in Victoria burning night and day
Through wooded and dry countryside they burn their way
For many fire affected Victorians it has been a terrible year
Of death and destruction such bad news to hear
The countryside very dry after long months of drought
And only heavy rains now will put the flames out
Hundreds of Human lives have been lost and thousands of homes burnt down
In Gippsland and Kinglake and Marysville Town
And more than a million animals have died
Their blackened remains in the blackened countryside
To Nature death and destruction are one of the same
Her anger is too great for humans to tame
And nothing will stop the fires only heavy rain
And only sad memories of February 09 with us will remain.
