If you are new to Wainuiomata
If you are new to Wainuiomata,
There are some things it is good to know.
If you lose your Wallet,
Continue with your picnic,
The Wallet will most likely find its way home.
No harm will come to you,
If you give a nod or cheery hello,
To those who on the street pass you.
If you are only shopping for a few items,
You will generally be moved to the front of the Que.
If your IQ is not too emotional,
And you wear a mask.
Owners of dogs,
Are usually trained well by their pets.
The weather can be quite tricky,
And if you see a few rain clouds,
Don't think it means you can opt out of mowing your lawns.
It took us thirty years to get it right,
But some have been known to do it in twenty.
