We all need and love a home
Look – Thomas has one of his own!
Concerned with Nature, it's in wood
And has an Outback feel – that's good!
Master of all he surveys
Thomas, the happy owner, plays
In his very own domain
Flat-roofed – there's very little rain
In South Australia – driest State
Here storms and floods so rarely make
Eruption on this sun-parched scene
Where only eucalpts stay green!
Bright gingham curtains peep from frames
While doorway Thomas entertains
His guests – that's you and me outside -
Quick – let us from the harsh sun hide!
