Brisbane deserted: Scenes at Christmas

Indooroopilly in Brisbane City
Streets so green, air clean
Birds call with the morning light
Eyes squint through midday bright

The suburb is quiet, undisturbed
Security systems on to prevent theft, owners left
Holidays are had up or down the coast
Those left behind feel like a ghost

Nature on show, red Christmas bows
Decorations left behind, newspapers to collect, please remind
Bins empty, scattered on street verges
Purple stains of a fruit bat mark mulberry purges

Birds seem louder, trees stand prouder
Here comes the rain, leaves choking stormwater drains
Brisbane is at its best when people go away
Street exploration, undisturbed without stopping for "G'day"
