Multicultural Day

People of many Nations of black and white and brown
They celebrate their cultures in the big park in the town
Migrants and children of migrants from places near and far away
Their cultures are celebrating on Multicultural Day

People of Australasia, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the Americas the contrast it is great
They sing their songs and dance their dances and their cultures celebrate
Their costumes are so beautiful so flowery and so bright
A look into their cultures is an amazing sight.

Their music, song and dance and food and cultures with them they do bring
The gift of Multiculturalism it is a marvellous thing
The vast differences in cultures interesting for to see
And song and dance and music does lead to harmony.

In the blue and sunny sky above the city just a few clouds of gray
They sing and dance and play their music their cultures on display
People of many Nations from near and far away
The town is full of colour on Multicultural Day.

That's What Friendship's About

It may not be any of those you drink with in the bar
When you are in trouble you'll know who your friends are,
Your friends will not desert you in your time of need
Just like it is said such friends are friends indeed,
The praises of friendship you hear people sing
But friendship for many is a conditional thing
Those who in friendship for them must be financial gain
Only for as long as you prosper as friends their type with you remain,
Your true friends as your true friends through your tough times will stay
Rats desert the sinking ship as some are known to say
Your friends will stand by you even in poverty
That's what friendship's about with that would you agree?
You may be the saddest of the poor of the town
But your friends won't ignore you when life has you down.

Wealthy But Unhappy

He has climbed to highest branch of success tree
And he's a winner everyone agree
But what use to you financial success
If in your heart you know no happiness.

He has built his business up right from the ground
And become the wealthiest man for miles around
But though he is the wealthiest man in town
Unknown to most at heart he does feel down.

In high class bars he drinks with his big wig chums
This man who was raised in the city slums
And he acts happy whilst in their company
And hide from them his sense of misery.

And though he came from a poor family
His boyhood years were happy and carefree
His widowed mother worked to raise her boys
She was good woman kind hearted and wise.

Had she lived on she'd have good things to say
About her eldest son and she'd feel proud of the way
That he reached the very top right from the floor
In her wildest dreams she could not have asked for more.

But despite his wealth he live an unhappy life
And his unhappiness due to his drug addicted wife
From taking drugs she's grown pale and looks sick
And she's doomed to die as her habit she can't kick.

And this goes to show that money doesn't guarantee
You a life of heart ease free of misery
As the wealthy man raised in the slums found out
That happiness can oft times go with 'hand to mouth'.

A Beautiful Place

The lorikeets chirp on the flowering gum trees it is such a beautiful day
And through the sunlit gardens the butterflies flit tiny dark spots on their wings of gray
The parklands and gardens lovely in their flowers and only a slight Summer breeze
The temperatures perfect for the time of year a tad over twenty degrees.

From this beautiful Country and beautiful place Utopia cannot be far away
For to view the beauty around us that is Nature's own money we do not have to pay
I could happily live here till the day I die surrounded by beauty so rare
No factory chimney billowing up black smoke and clean is the warm Summer air.

A painter could sketch such a beautiful place a poet about it could write
The birds chirp and whistle on bushes and trees in the early afternoon sunlight
The voices of the mynas one cannot mistake distinctive even in their song
You hear them once and you will know them again them you never ought to get wrong.

I could happily live here till the day I die this is such a beautiful place
Where Nature is happy and colourful and bright with a warm sunny smile on her face
A beautiful day in a beautiful clime a tad over twenty degrees
The lorikeets chirping on the flowering gums their wings as green as the leaves of the trees.
