Not Fade Away!

The Ozzie sun’s a two-edged sword
Its rays are powerful and broad
No matter if you can’t afford
A tumble drier
A quick spin – laundry on the line
Monday’s chore done in no time
Bone dry sheets and towels are fine
But sun is dire!

Fabric fades at speed of light
Elastic undies don’t pull tight
So washing’s best done late at night
And left to billow
Drip dry under Southern Cross
Is gentler and involves no loss
When night’s shades have won the toss
And your head’s on pillow!
