It is a big place with water and land around it. It's at one of the beaches. Lots of ratbags there, the way they’re carrying on. They’re standing in the street, only got their trousers on. Looks silly. They’re all the same people, 5 of them. Of course they know each other. They’re friends. They’re having a bit of a dance. You’d hear the birds singing and the boys singing. They’re having a lovely time and good dance.
You would smell the water, men and women. Looks like it is raining. Nice clean smell of heavy rain.
Next the rain falls down and they all get wet and it serves them right because they shouldn’t be dancing around in the rain. In the end, they deserved it.
