The Tokyo Man

He loves the open spaces of the Australian countryside
The paddocks on either side of the highway that stretch far and wide
Miles south of overcrowded Tokyo in Japan
The lust of the wander is in the young man
Where people most part of the night and all day long
To and from their places of work to and from the fast trains do throng
One thing about home he does not feel nostalgic about
There are some things in life that we can live without
He feels happy to live where the weather is breezy and bright
Where the magpie in Winter sings in the moonlight
He is from one of the World's great Cities where people for success compete
At any time of the day or night in Tokyo never a deserted street
He does enjoy life where people are few
Where every day from Nature he does learn something new.
