Total Fire Ban Day

Poem By Francis Duggan

The temperatures at a very warm forty degrees
And there is great warmth in the freshening breeze
That through the dry country up the wooded hill blow
On days like today the threat of bushfires grow
Last Summer many people and animals in the bush fires died
That ravaged Victoria's wooded countryside
Some of those fires were started by humans quite deliberately
The pyromaniac is quite a dangerous public enemy,
Today in Victoria a total fire ban day
Anyone by law officers even caught lighting a barby a huge fine have to pay
Those in fire prone areas at this time of year
Of the threat of bushfires feel a sense of fear
When Nature is angry mercy to none she does show
And the risk of fire high when the warm Summer winds blow.

And I've been in London City in the rain and in the snow

And believe me if I tell you I have earned the bread I eat.

A Beautiful Person With A Heart Of Gold

She sees things of beauty in all that she see
And what's beautiful to her seems ugly to me
What to her is a flower to me is a weed

The Sound Of Laughter

The sound of laughter is a thing of beauty for laughter spreads the very gift of joy
That people they are drawn to happy people is not that hard for to understand why
Since everybody wishes to be happy and laughter it spreads happiness around
And only the heartless could not like the sound of laughter for laughter is a very happy sound,

The Admirable Mo

My admiration for him it only does grow
For a braver one than he is of i may never know
