The naughty ember

Image from

The naughty little ember decided to play a game,
"I'll make the people dance" it claimed.

It flew to the Blue Mountains and gobbled many homes ,
But got bored and wanted others to join the fray.

It flew to the Southern Highlands, to the Hunter and the Central Coast
Looking to make more mischief,

It ate more homes and bushland, and closed highways and an airport,
And caused commuters and travellers grief.

And made people and animals flee,

It threw black smoke across Sydney's skies,
And buggered up Year 12's HSC.

We know you're not finished you wicked little ember,
We know your evil is widespread.

But beware, take care, you horrid little ember.
Our brave lads and lasses, will weather your fire, heat and ashes,
And not rest until you are dead.

  1. Hello Debs !!

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I do appreciate each and every one and will do my best to reply. I do apologise for the comment moderation I've been forced to put into place thanks to Mr Dark's spamming. It was not so much the spamming that bothered me - it was his appalling grammar.
