2014 "Force 10" Shiraz
During the drought I barely had to work.
Just the inconvenience of being covered in dry, dusty dirt!
What joy there was when the water came back.
With a great deal of enthusiasm we stated to bring the farm back.
Lucerne seed was the gold we would sow
It was like planting an overdraft just to watch it grow!
Bring in the bees, they'll pollinate the flower
But my allergies made their existence turn sour.
Howlin' bloody gales won't let the flowers set
Empty field bins were all we could get.
You reckon we'd be happy to have athe water back
But now we have snakes, mozzies and a pissed off Ack!
