Oh Yea of Little Faith!

Tony Abbott knows he’s right!
Science and historical research
Will not convince him, despite
The climate data you all cite!
From studies of the ancient church
Reading holy scriptures
In writings and in pictures
He’s seen those images of Roman times.
Invaders of the holy lands,
Shod in sandals, in short skirts,
Helmeted and holding shields,
Swords in bare brown arms and hands,
They had no need of shirts.
That’s the truth his memory yields.
All that heat and dust and blood,
Mothers clinging to their babies,
The screams and all the killing!
Yes, terrible, but somehow thrilling.

Of course it was as hot as Hades!
