Where I call home

                   Where I call home
Beside the roads 
orange soldier's guide the way.

On damp days the smell of wet concrete 
makes its way up into my nose.

On cold days stormy air filters its way around 
And makes its way to where The black eyed
Fantail sits on the tree tops.

From in the car I see mountains 
They send a shiver down my spine.

At the end of a long day I crouch 
Down by the 
On a cold winter's night .

That's where I call home
Otautahi Christchurch!
