When Rob Oakeshott was ‘goodwill’ hunting,
There were nods, hugs, friendly gruntings
And signings of agreement by both sides
Across the political divide.
What happened to all that ‘goodwill?’
With Abbot does it count for nil?
Breaking faith on the Speaker’s Chair,
Did he give it thought or prayer?
Where is that ‘kinder, gentler place’
He promised with an earnest face?
What ‘goodwill’ can this man hope for?
That independents cross the floor?
Or that voters now will trust him more?
