Well done Sara, you know I never saw all of it Despite being native born, and travelling there Lots, recreation and work were going on Together My life was in the mid sized inland towns and Bush towns, occasionally venturing to the City's Sad to see the stupidity going on there right now But action will begin to redress the many Wrongs being done'

The title of the poem should be three words long and follow this format: (first word of Line 3-Australia ) (preposition-UNDER or conjunction-WHEN) (first word of line 47-Down) example Australia WHEN Down
