Beautiful drought!

Windy Windy Windy the wind sung!
This marked the beginning of the dry spell
This marked the beginning of death for beautiful cattle
This marked the beginning of the dry river bed
The beautiful countryside turned brown

Turrr Turrr Turrr Turrr rota sung!
The beautiful drought attracted it to the dusty village
The beautiful helicopter landed greeted by dust
The beautiful cameras came out black and shinning
The beautiful face of mum faced up looking at their water bottle

Click Click Click Click cameras sung!
This one will make a good front page picture
This one is even better because she is beautiful
This one is so thin and has no cloths on but traditional beads
This one is the dying beauty that will make newspapers sell

Turrr Turrr Turrr Turrr rota sung!
The beautiful journalists hopped in happily
The beautiful cameras packed up dusted to shine as before
The beautiful face of mum remaining but soul gone to maker
The beautiful drought remains for me and my siblings

Hot hot hot hot is the sun above!
The ugly vultures hover above waiting to devour mum's remains
The ugly bandits hide in the neighbourhood to take my cooking pots
The ugly hyena hunger in the bushes to snatch my baby brother
The beautiful drought has made me a prisoner
