A Monster Fire
A two hundred and fifty kilometres firefront is burning through Victoria East
Blackening the environment and dispossessing human, bird and beast
Clogging the sky with gray fog for hundreds of kilometres around
And only blackened desolation where it has been through to be found.
This must be near to a World record firefront this is a monster fire
And for the people of Eastern Victoria the consequences are dire
It burns all before it mercy to none it does show
And where the fires have been through Nature's rejuvenation does seem slow.
Through Eastern Victoria the firefront burns it's way
And it is a blackened Countryside where the fires have been today
But Nature is her own best healer and after a few days of rain
Eastern Victoria will recover and look quite green again.
This fire was an act of Nature started by a lightning strike
Even people in their eighties say they have never seen it's like
And many venture for to say Australia's biggest fire
And a two hundred and fifty kilometres firefront awe only does inspire.
