Treasure Island

The Weather's Wet!


The weather's wet, and skies are grey,
I wish I could just stay in bed,
But I must go to work today,

I'm safe beneath the warm duvet,
Not thinking ‘bout the day ahead,
The weather's wet, and skies are grey,

If only I could stay away,
I'd rather be at home instead,
But I must go to work today,

'Get up, get out, and earn your pay! '
A little voice screams in my head.
The weather's wet, and skies are grey,

A normal British summer's day,
With forecasts of more rain ahead,
But I must go to work today,

I wish there were another way,
In which to earn my daily bread,
The weather's wet, and skies are grey,
But I must go to work today.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


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;
