Death Near A River

Death near a river comes without warning
Invertebrates warring
Against the mistakes of the past
Sugar ants climb river gum bark
Stalks pick at grass
Workmen sing pa-rum-bum-bum-bum
Soft paper barks kill
The hop of the willy wag
The eucalyptus grandis shadow
The yellowed juncus
Or snapped sheoak
Death near a river comes without warning.
