Light Verses — Bet Briggs

Founding Fathers

God said:
“Let there be light.”
And there upon the earth was Light,
bright Colonel of the regiment;
beside the Torrens torrent
in 1836 he surveyed
the site and quick to decide
Light said:
“Let here be Adelaide.”
And there Light laid young Adelaide,
then three years later died.



Farewell Sale

The auctioneer said:
“This is my final call,
my last bid is on,
one only to consider,
so I let my hammer fall.
I’m going, going, gone
to the Highest Bidder.”
