Truth Seeker has kindly allowed us to use another of his great poems about Tony Abbott. With this one, like his others, he really hits the nail on the head. It’s a great read and one that’ll have you nodding in agreement.
Truth Seeker says:
Like many people, I am appalled at the hypocrisy of Tony Abbott and the LNP.
His three word slogans are designed to brainwash, not to inform, but when he holds up Howard’s time as a golden age and then sloganeers “Stop the waste”, you should know that the man (?) just isn’t serious, and his slogans are just that (slogans) and nothing more! But taking my lead from Abbott, here is my own three-word slogan: Stop the Abbott.
Stop the Abbott
When Tony Abbott cries “stop the waste”
One wonders on what this call is based
The B E R, he’s labelled a farce
But the facts show he’s talking through his arse
He cites school halls, as wasted cash
His intent, the ALP to bash
But his past proves an inconvenient truth
As his tenure in government proves him a goof
And their best education, infrastructure goals
Were, to supply some schools, with new flagpoles.
Then there’s the pink batts he claims were waste
And a program implemented with too much haste
When the truth is that the Abbott lied
To score some points from a few that died
With workplace health and safety breached
By bad employers, who over reached
Putting profits before their duty of care
To guarantee that they got their share
Of funds to stimulate the economy
And to insulate us from the GFC.
Now waste is quite a hypocritical term
To be used, by that lying, right wing worm
Who’s proved to be a pretty large impost
On the tax payers purse, a very heavy cost
And traveling around to promote his book
When he can’t produce policies, is not a good look
And his volunteer and charity work, is not what it should be
As he claims it on expenses, paid for by you and me
With an expense account greater than the PMs is
“Do as I say, not as I do” is the rule that’s his.
But it’s not only waste he wants to stop
On his list, the carbon tax is on the top
But the truth is, he’ll find it hard to do
Cos the man is full of cattle poo
But he’ll play his games, at the country’s expense
Cos he’s totally lacking common sense
As he’ll blame the “Tax” for everything
From the price of food to his mobiles ring
And if he lays his hands on the keys to the Lodge
It’s one of many commitments that he’ll seek to dodge.
And his other favourite slogan of, “Stop the boats”
Is one policy platform that sinks, instead of floats
Based on Howard’s Pacific solution, and its bad, decaying smell
And the hope that Indonesia won’t tell him to go to hell
And the regional solution, Abbott simply won’t support
Cos he doesn’t want the boats to stop, It’s another LNP rort
Like Ashbygate and Thom(p)son, and Turnbull’s Utegate too
A blight on our democracy from that rabid right wing crew
Who’s born to rule mentality dictates the games they play
Their goal, to win at any cost, and democracy the price to pay.
His hero Johnny Howard is what the Abbott aspires to be
Who ran the most wasteful government in Australia’s history
And it’s not about him stopping boats or that “Toxic Carbon Tax”
It’s about lies and three word slogans, and ignoring all the facts
It’s about his own ambition, and the things that make him tick
Misogynist and Pugilist, he’s a rabid right wing dick
It’s about the ones who’ll pull the strings, Murdoch and Rinehart too
And the billionaires agendas, to do over me and you
It’s about a man, when asked hard questions, takes off like a rabbit
It’s not about waste, or tax, or boats . . . we just have to . . . stop the Abbott.
