Don’t Worry Be Happy – by Rachael Briggs, for Xavier High School, 2013

The sun. A yellow bottle cap. The sun.
Ranunculus and dandelion. Wattle.
A burger bun. A hat. A sunburnt face.
A lightbulb. A computer screen. A jeep.
A burning coal. A flame. A piece of plastic.
Ignition. A Ferrari painted yellow.
Caution. Centre line. A dead canary.
A lion skin. A thousand shades of dye.
Desert. Hornet. Bushfire. Corn. Dead bees.
Tornado. Dust bowl. Flood line. Fog. The sky.
Some bones. The dump. A mountain. Plastic bags.
The sun. A yellow bottle cap. The sun.
