More Verses for the Song of Joyce

So lefties all let us rejoice!
For they have Barnaby!
He’s out there now with charts to show
How one and one make three.
Queensland has given such a gift,
A talent rich and rare.
No need to rage, at every stage
Their Barnaby is there!
As Tony strains to make some gains
His Barnaby is there!

We lefties all can yet rejoice!
They’ve not dumped Barnaby!
He’s gone to Water in the bush
Where he can roam freely.
Country development will be
His first and major care.
As well he gets to mention debt.
Yes, Barnaby’s still there!
As Tony strains to make some gains
His Barnaby’s still there!

NOTES

I modified this on 07/11/11 for Cafe Whispers, copy to The Political Sword, when it occurred to me that dear old Sloppy Joe fitted just as well Barnaby and could earn a bit more appreciation!

ALP Song of Joe!

So lefties all let us rejoice!
For they have Sloppy Joe!
He’s out there now with charts to show
One into two won’t go.
North Sydney’s given such a gift,
A talent rich and rare.
No need to rage, at every stage
Sloppy Joe is there!
As Tony strains to make some gains
Sloppy Joe is there!

AntonyG, 07/11/11, Great poem Patricia. I love that one, Tony strains to make some gains.

Feral Skeleton, 07/11/11, PatriciaWA, Brilliant! You could do a whole set of Christmas Carols in the lead-up to the Yuletide Season to be Merry. How about, to start you off, “Good King Tony Alas’, to the tune of Good King Wensceslas?

George, 07/11/11, PatriciaWA, thanks for the smile/laugh :–)

Georgeous Dunny, 07/11/11, Now there’s a thought, George. We’d love to see you two collaborate – your graphics and PatriciaWA’s poems – for a production piece.

gigi, 07/11/11, PatriciaWA – “Sloppy Joe is there.” I simply can’t imagine Joe as a contender. Looking at him makes one think of a sauna … Also he must be on a high-cholesterol diet which has its own potential perils. He is light-weight with his policies and heavy-weight otherwise. Honestly, Joe should play a bit more often with his kiddies
