The Australian Outback

Three men seeking to stake their claim
Rode off into the Australian outback
Not experienced with the torrential rains
Only two men came riding back

In a land that is parched by the Southern sun
New prospectors feel only heat's pain
Their first year in this unforgiving land
They do not expect the rain

Rivers run dry for most of the year
You can't even tell where they be
But if from flash floods you don't stay clear
A rush of water will be the last thing you see

Three men seeking to stake their claim
Rode off into the Australian outback
They were not prepared when the flash floods came
Only two men came riding back

    very creative. You made a whole story from that one picture. All I did was describe the dang thing. I can see this one maybe winning the gold!!! (thanks for the HM. I think that was your twisted contest, wasn't it?. I enjoyed reading the winners)
