A social site for poets in Sydney.
Smell that my boy, the rains are in the air
The air’s so thick, I can cut it with my knife
Dunno how much more we can all bear
We’ll need to harvest our crops by night
There’s a sailor’s warning from Brisbane to Toowoomba
If those skies give way, these banks will breach
so let’s go boy, get in the car
‘cause this mongrel sky looks bleak
Those heavy black sacks have opened wide
so these river banks won’t hold this time
‘cause there’s an evil rising tide
that’ll swallow these towns in no time
Over there boy, there’s a raging tsunami in town!
and those rapids are sweeping that car. But wait….
there are people trapped and about to drown!
They’re screaming for help! – No….. we’re too late!
I can’t believe it boy, 21 dead in a blink of an eye
most didn’t know they were going to drown
from an evil that was once benign
This disaster has decimated our towns
