Did you say St George?
Once under threat of indundation?
Where Barnaby has his station?
Wasn’t there a headline story,
Covering our Senator in glory?
No, that was just some crazy plan,
A dream of being Action Man.
When their dam seemed about to burst.
He thought he’d be a National first;
A pollie who pulled his finger out
And held it where a leak had sprout!
Driving, he saw that headline there,
The answer to his party’s prayer:
Local Hero! Barnaby Joyce!
“I had to do it! I had no choice!”
That’s what, in his delirium, he said,
Lying on his hospital bed.
He’d almost drowned in a flooded creek.
Not a dam that had sprung a leak,
Which he kept repeating. More bizarre,
Though less fevered, was, “What can I claim on a government car?”
Feral Skeleton, 21/04/11, Patricia WA, Twinkling verse! It certainly brightens up my day.
janice, 24/04/11, Patricia, I’m running out of words of praise for your work. Perhaps I could just give you 10 stars for this one 🙂
