Two kangaroos passed by

Two Kangaroos passed by

It was on a Friday morning
There’s me, and my dog Bear
We’re walking down a silent street
There’s no one anywhere
It be a balmy,  Summers morn
Around about three o clock
With nothing special on my mind
Not really taking stock.

Then suddenly old Bear looks up
With a strange look on his face
And there across the road I see
Two guys with so much grace
They were two grown up Kangaroos
And golly what a sight
At three am they passed me by
And gave me such delight.

The area that I live in
Is built up now, today
So Kangaroos so very rarely
Do pass me by that way
Poor little guys had lost their way
I bet they were confused
For all their homes have been destroyed
They have been so misused.

    Hi Andrea; yes Oz is a very beautiful country, and I am lucky to be here, especially western Oz. Yes, we have a great welfare state, though many abuse it. Thanks for your comments....Peter

    Another great one. There are so many creatures on this wonderful planet of ours. You point out something sacred about it. I was thinking that there are too many of us and hoping that we can quietly reduce our footprint without some huge disaster. Your work is such an inspiration.

    Thank you Duke; for all m y love I have loved nature, and never had any inclination to make something of my life. I have always seen much deeper into my soul, for some reason. I went through forty years of pain through me being very sensitive, and being involved in a war. But now I am back and filled with zest and life. ..Peter
