The Country

2nd in the 'Top Secret 2016' competition

The country is very dusty,
The steel is very rusty.
There is no water,
And the grass is getting shorter.
The cows are dying,
And there are no longer any birds flying.
It is only blue in the sky,
We would give everything a try
Because we need to keep our cattle alive,
We want all of them to survive.
We are all trying,
But all the plants keep dying.
The blowflies are taking over,
And we need a new drover.
The country is in pain.
All we need is rain.
