A career politician who’s never been married
Childless and dedicated to one’s vocation
As a leader one is constantly harried
In their ascention to lead our great nation

First step is to carve out a reputation
As a smart and respected adversary
To master the art of communication
And not be irrational, lazy or cursory

Slowly, strategically you climb through the ranks
Of your political party of the left
As you climb to the top you must give thanks
But reflect on a life so bereft

Never been a parent or walked down the aisle
But devoted to a political pit so sinister
And you’ve risen above the rank and file
To be one step closer to being Prime Minister

Maybe the life of sacrifice has been worth the travails
As now you find yourself leading your congregation
And with all the responsibility leadership entails
You stay focussed despite the anticipation

So close to the top, near to the top job
A life’s aspiration so close to fruition
Not long now and you’ll be the big knob
And fulfill a lifelong ambition

All of a sudden it all comes to head
And Labor ruthlessly bring Kevin Rudd down
Don’t let the power go to your head
You’re now the proxy Prime Minister Bob Brown

Gillard’s a lame duck, a slave to the Greens
Her government soon to be buried in a casket
Brown pulls the strings, and you know what that means?
We’re all going to hell in a handbasket!

Wasn’t it a depressing sight
To see Wayne Swan on Lateline last night
Like a startled deer caught in the headlight
So typically unconvincing and trite

He went to the club of the National press
Productivity Commission data he did possess
But was he unconvincing? Would you hazard a guess?
The answer is a resounding ‘YES’

Swan had cherry picked an incomplete report
In a lame-brained attempt trying to thwart
The opposition’s attempts at a Carbon tax abort
But his efforts will only lead to more Abbott support

Because Ali Moore exposed the lie
And no matter how hard the head-wobbler did try
His flimsy prognonis was dismantled thereby
To Swan’s last shred of credibility we can say goodbye

Not only was the report incomplete
But Swan cherry picked a price, an act of deceit
When Moore exposed his deception Swan’s chagrin was complete
And he refused to “canvas” and bid a hasty retreat

Swan also upset the “Multi-Party Committee”
And left Christine Milne feeling neglected and shitty
Which isn’t really such a pity
But watching her spout her propoganda isn’t pretty

“I’m here to discuss the modelling” Swan insisted
It would expose Abbott’s scare campaign as false & twisted
But as Moore pressed for answers and insisted
That the data was flimsy as it currently consisted

“I’m not going through the detail of the modelling” Swan retorted
“But isn’t that why you’re here? That’s what’s been reported!
You said the modelling proved your point and it’s all been sorted
But once again you’ve presented as dishonest and distorted”.

Cheery-picking modelling based on $20 a tonne
A price on carbon? There isn’t yet one
So his entire thesis is immediately undone
No matter how desperately Swan wants it spun

So the report on which Swan had presented his case
Had exploded embarrassingly right into his face
No matter how hard he tried to blame Abbott and debase
Swan once again proved he’s an incompetent disgrace

Swan's pathetic and cringeworthy performance here:

This mob’s been in power for almost 4 years
And have proven to be the sum of all of our fears
And as Julia Gillard’s 1 year anniversary nears
Any semblance of credibility all but disappears

Every new day presents another policy failure
As the Empress with no clothes flaunts her ill-fitting regalia
And the ALP destroys the very fabric of Australia
Bogged down in smokescreens and lost in paraphernalia

The ‘Malaysian Solution’ is not a solution
It’s just another pathetic Labor contribution
Once again bungled in its executuion
And leading to disgraceful child persecution

The ‘Carbon Tax’ proposal is yet another attempt
By Labor to treat the public with disdain & contempt
An all-encompassing tax of which none are exempt
From a Government inept, dishonest and unkempt

The ‘Mining Tax’ fiasco continues on unabated
Like other Labor failures, they’re all interelated
Leaving consumer confidence sadly deflated
And this Government’s reputation badly desecrated

Has there ever been a more accident prone collection?
So tainted with failures and full of imperfection
A Government so despised, so prone to disaffection
Now we’ve all had enough and demand an election

But of course that won’t happen while Julia’s PM
Because it’s not about us, it’s all about them
As she desperately clings to power as the public condemn
I pray she calls an election soon, please God….Amen.

Sincere thanks to all those who sent messages of support during my recent bout of ill-health. I'm recovering well and hope to be back here more regularly over coming days and weeks.
