Drought

I wish I could write about the drought

but I can't
It is too damn depressing.

I wish I could write about the starving Emus

lined up at the vermin proof fence searching for food and water

being shot in their thousands

but I can't.

I'm told the drought is an act of God

I dunno,

I think Man has a bit to do with it

others blame El Nino

it's good to have a scapegoat
Terry Edwards

It's hard to find the words when the pain is so vivid.
