Fearful Adaptation
Anger makes any coward brave
Catharsis is imagination
Expression necessitates more anguish
Absence of health, absence of wealth,
Breed misery, emptiness
Presence of health, presence of wealth
No guarantee of happiness
Mood swings pendulum style
Minds peak mid-day
Peace and presence of mind
Do good, do not as they say
Absence of sun foreshadows
Absence of mind
Presence of a future
Leaves the past blind

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
