Bloody Oath!

Tony Abbott, politician,
Leader of the Coalition,
Once an upright man of God
Has now become a lightning rod
For unfair and cruel criticism
About whom there’s too much cynicism.

He once confessed to telling lies,
Which self-disclosure has given rise
To friends and foes alike inviting
Him to put his promises in writing.
Fearing that for truth his name’s now mud,
He swears he’ll sign to some in his own blood.

Today he’s offered even more –
To clarify which policies are gore and which non-gore.

dylwah, 14/10/11, “gore and non-gore policies” Patricia WA, that is gold

adrian, 14/10/11, Yes, that’s one of your best Patricia WA !

Ambigulous, 14/10/11, Yes, GOLD!!!

BilB, 14/10/11, PatriciaWA, I had a good laugh at that one.

Sue, 14/10/11, With all the talk of blood letting I suppose the next thing is that Tony will call in the catholic warriors to perform an exorcism of the unholy carbon tax. With his sermon yesterday to business ‘if they shalt buy a carbon permit, thine permit is worthless and thus can not pass into the heaven of a tony government’, the congregation of the money makers was probably truly spooked.

PatriciaWA, 15/10/11, I’m wondering if Tony has decided that he can unilaterally make and break laws! Anything decided by the godless Gillard’s government which he doesn’t like need not be observed until he gets to be PM!

Min, 15/10/11, Patricia love it …policies are gore and non-gore, brilliant!

jane, 15/10/11, patricia, love ‘gore and non-gore’ – Gold!

Acerbic Conehead, 15/10/11, PatriciaWA, Loved your “Bloody Oath” poem, especially the “gore and non-gore” policies, lol.

Nasking, 17/1011, Patricia, I dig yer poem. Yer spot on w/ this:

He once confessed to telling lies,
Which self-disclosure has given rise
To friends and foes alike inviting
Him to put his promises in writing.
Fearing that for truth his name’s now mud,
He swears he’ll sign to some in his own blood.

Not only does Abbott hope to get widespread media & subsequently public attention…but he obviously knows he’s not trusted and therefore comes up w/ such extreme announcements in order to try and convince people. He seems to have few boundaries…and as we’ve witnessed the past year, he’s willing to benefit from the activities of extremist movements such as the “Rolex Revolution” & “anti-carbon price movement”…at some point addressing them like a supreme leader making all kinds of fiery, blunt, reductionist and exaggerated claims about his opposition, the government…and making bold promises that in all probability cannot be fulfilled…or would lead to huge political & socio-economic disruption. The fact that so many out there in the public and the media repeat ad nauseum his sales pitches…and the arguments of his propaganda machine including Alan Jones & some in the Murdoch empire, worries me that an Abbott regime in the present war & economically insecure climate could take this vulnerable nation down the road to a climate of extreme crusading nationalism & religiosity that will divide communities and lead to a sense of being dispossessed and somewhat persecuted for many who do not agree w/ Abbott & Murdoch’s policies.
