Business As Usual - Poem by Francis Duggan

A wet Summer day in the busy coastal town
The rain from the gray clouds is bucketing down
Yet in the business centre the pre Christmas shopping is in full swing
And young carol singers on the street Christmas carols do sing
In the Christian World a festive time of year
A time of present giving and receiving and a time of cheer,
A time for enjoyment and dining and beer
In the meeting of family and friends their friendship to us dear
Though the farmers are not doing financially well
The rain it is welcome after the warm dry spell
Bare patches in the brown paddocks tell of Climate Change
In Global Warming the weather is known to act strange
Just eight sleeps to Christmas the rain pouring down
And business as usual in the coastal town.
