Fiona Katauskas in New Matilda in the interests of balance with a certain ABC comedy, to which I will not provide a link, has given us a great cartoon.
But like many other cartoonists, reporters and commentators she has overlooked a very important fact.
Nearly all of the media have got it wrong,
But some of us have known it all along.
Tony Abbott as PM will dodge
The inconvenience of The Lodge.
Like John Howard, he’s not silly,
Where he plans to live is Kirribilli!
Ask any TV news reporter,
He needs sea to prove he walks on water.
And those shots of his daily cleans and jerks,,
Don’t reveal all of his body works.
Some things are best kept in obscurity
Beyond range of Canberra “security.
It’s rumoured he has a secret life
Behind the facade of three kids and a wife.
He needs to take care or he’ll be a goner,
Seen once too often with that ‘Belladonna.’
Whoever of these is his ‘lovely lady’
He should drop her. She’s poison. Deadly. Shady.
Then he should do that show, “At Home With Tony”
Just for PR, no matter how phony.
Show off the family; he’d have it made.
He can mention his mortgage he’s gotta get paid.
“Money’s tight, sure don’t grow on trees!”
Yeah, he’s just like us. So vote for him, please!
Nearby lives friend and advisor, George Pell,
A Cardinal, who can save him from hell,
Forgive him this sin, grant him remission,
With all those to come, at daily confession.
That’s another reason Tony’s ambition is
For our PM’s residence to be in……… Sydney’s Catholic Archdiocese.
NOTES: This was posted at Cafe Whispers and we had a lot of fun with it. As usual I’ve gathered my favorite compliments here for my enjoyment in my declining years!!! The discussion there was fun, but has now given way to more serious topics. Discussion was expanded though when Talk Turkey from The Political Sword decided to copy it across there!
Sue, 30/09/11, Thanks for the laugh. The funniest things are always those close to the truth.
Miglo, 30/09/11, Brilliant, Patricia. You are such a talented lady.
Min, 20/09/11, Absolutely brilliant. I love it!
Catching up, 05/10/2011, Well he turned up at Windsor I think with the wife. Will someone tell her next time she goes out with her man, it would be a good idea to have a smile on your face. That is the drill, even if one does not feel like smiling.
