"Bush Fire Tanka Chain"

I remember smoke
On the wind, always warning
Of approaching fire

Out with the long handled shovel
And beat beat beat all night

~~~~~~

I have always said
You get one fire, you get more
There's always some fool

With more matches than sense
More paraffin than brain cells

~~~~~~

The fire is beaten
And we see the damage done
All the loss of life

What better time to remember
Those friends that touched our hearts
