How else to break monotony
With only thoughts for company?
Wheels whirl out ideas for me.
They roll out in a litany.
How can we win a lot more votes?
Keep a count on asylum boats!
That’ll get lots of headline quotes
And keep the Greens at Labor throats.
Unemployed should be down the mines.
Get bludgers off their fat behinds.
Objectors should pay heavy fines.
That’s bound to win some hearts and minds.
So what about the nation’s health?
For that I’ll need a bit more stealth.
Why aren’t they active like myself?
I don’t rely on the Commonwealth!
Nearly there! Another twenty miles!
Media will be crowding in the aisles,
Wanting my latest for their files.
My party men will be all smiles.
I must wheel in something they will like!
Just avoid the ‘off’ words like ‘dyke’ –
But they loved ‘Labor’s big tax hike!’
How about – ‘Gillard, on yer bike!’
No, perhaps not.
Julia’s hot to trot.
One charity shot
And that’s my lot!
