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.
