Season’s Plying By
There’s blokes been out there shearin’,
share croppin’ and the like
and they’ve worked their way up slowly
to a different way of life.
A way they dreamed n worked for
an acreage they’d own
along of course with bankers,
stock agents wheelin’ by.
There’s blokes been out there workin’
with wives n kids on side,
workin’ along steady
as seasons slowly ply.
Seasons cross the ages
as seasons ply their course,
hot n dry and flooded.
Parchment landscape marks the course.
There’s blokes been out there workin’,
hard at it on their block,
clearin’ land n seedin’.
Bit o shearin’, still of course.
There’s blokes still out there working
with wives n kids n crew,
other cultures mounting.
Banks changing out their course
as agents pay attention.
‘Gainst seasons plyin’ by.
Blokes’re out their shearin’.
Still out there for a try.
