Drought Poem: 10-year-old Toby Stephens from Canowindra Public School submitted the following poem to The Daily Telegraph explaining what lives are like living in a drought.
Decreasing stock and grain.
Rural communities are restricted on water
“Ooh” we only get 5mm.
Umbrellas forgotten what they look like.
Gee the drought is bad.
How can our community help?
Too many silos are empty.
Saving money and water can help everyone in a drought.
