Mr. Tony Abbott’s confessor
Must surely advise
That telling these lies
Makes him a serial transgressor.
Shouldn’t he counsel how sinister,
Is this worldly goal?
It’s risking his soul,
Striving to be Prime Minister.
Please intervene, Monsignor Pell.
Appoint him to Rome,
His natural home,
Save him (and Australia) from hell.
Ad Astra, 19/09/10, I see you’re another poet. Forgiveness for lies seems always to be available to Tony, or at least he believes so.
