    Lawson was a joy to read, when studying Aussie lit, he's so well write
    the rain is falling hard here, tropical Indonesian rain, the scanned lines are fine
    Our Andy's gone to battle now
    'Gainst Drought, the red marauder;
    but Australian Soil, is still losing the battle, to erosion drought
    hard hoofed animals cattle sheep; rabbits; a rabbit proof fence was kinda neat
    raising salinity high water table still to beat
    maybe satellite grazing is the answer sport
    Drought still haunts Australia still, but Andy's spirit was never beat

    Deplorable indeed when all season guy like Andy goes out leaving all on a great mission! Smooth flowing stanzas depicting the joyful nature of Andy makes the reader too feel his absence much! Nice simple poem!
