The Abbott Confers With His Bishop

“We must help the miners,
Land Labor some shiners.”
Julie grimaces, “Eeeuw!
The CFMEU?”

“No, their directors on boards!
If they get fewer rewards
With this new profits tax
They’ll stop our kick-backs.

It’s affecting their health
These threats to their wealth.
Every mining magnate
Has become overweight.

They say all this worry
Is worse than coal slurry.
I’ve got it – ‘Keep Mining Strong!’
Let’s promote their theme song!”

That’s what the two of them did.
Tony, muscled and fit,
Julie, hair all bouffant,
Aping ‘Walk Against Want!’

Yes, they wore the T shirt
And at Rudd threw some dirt.
That was really their pitch
In their ‘Fun Run For the Rich!’

Don’t these two understand
That for most in this land
Their actions were alien
To the average Australian?
