The Boil

It is only fitting that the first post on my blog should be the first poem that I posted back in August 2012.

It was written as my response to the craziness that was happening in the political landscape at that time, and just after I started blogging.

The medical analogy of a boil seemed the logical  response, as the lies and misinformation certainly needed to be excised from the Australian psyche, to rebuild the confidence that was being eroded by the LNP’s negativity.

So this is it;

The Boil

The Australian public looked upwards in awe

From the base of a hill that was not there before

It appeared just like magic, and it grew overnight

And by the next morning, was a hell of a sight

And some people said this was surely a sign

That the country was sick, and we’re in a decline

But the government said wait, this just isn’t right

The economy is good and the future is bright

But the people got frightened by the sight of the mound

And despite all the evidence said the country’s not sound


But the government continued, as the figures were good

Ignoring doomsayers as they knew that they should

But frustration increased in the ranks of “The NO”

And the hill stole their focus and continued to grow

Big red and angry with a festering head

“It looks like a pimple”, one observant soul said

Then a little boy smiled, as he spoke to his Mum

“It’s just like that boil, that I had on me bum”

And a woman with shock written over her face

Said.. “The damned thing’s so big… you could see it from space”


So the question arose as to what should be done

With a bloody great boil that could blot out the sun

Could they lance it or squeeze it or just build a fence

Round a festering pustule that was so immense

But after heated discussion machinery was brought

So the squeezing commenced and the excision sought

And they pushed and they squeezed until up went a shout

And bugger me dead, all the media popped out.

Pushing harder and harder, spurred on by success

Coalition backbenchers were expelled.. with the mess.


Then the core broke away in a fountain of pus

And in the midst of the gore was an LNP bus

Covered with slogans and filled up with slime

Then the door slowly opened and out stepped Chris Pyne

And the children collectively said to their mummies

“It’s a big mincing poodle, with a mouthful of dummies”

Then Hockey slipped, landing, calculator in lap

But the batteries were spent and his figures were crap

Mirabella and Bishop stepped out hand in hand

They were covered in slime….. but their posture was grand


Abetz and his senators came out, single file

Followed closely by Abbott spewing venom and bile

His budgies were glowing and his hirsute chest puffed

But the people all saw that his party was stuffed

With his slogans revealed for the rubbish they were

And his efforts exposing him as the billionaires Cur

With their policy vacuum being more than enough

To expose them as naught but a large pile of slough (sluff)

So the people moved on with their confidence high

As the Abbott’s  ambitions… went completely awry


And the country recovered, growing stronger each day

While the LNP circus slowly faded away

And the moral for all is the poison, you’ll foil

If you use enough pressure to excise the boil

And don’t be misled into sad apathy

But seek out the truth, as it will set you free

Ask questions, demand answers and ignore all the spin

And then those that deserve it will hopefully win

And be careful when riding the LNP bus

As you may well end up…. Sitting… covered in… pus.

    I have just stumbled upon your blog and wondered what fairy story I was reading. Then I noticed that you proclaim yourself as left wing. You and your lot will never get anywhere in life because of your envy and hatred for anyone that does succeed. I dont know if you are married but if you are then according to Juliar Gillard you are a prostitute. Please see this dreadful excuse for a woman for what she is and what she has done to this country. Read Michael Smith News and see all the documentation he has put forward to prove that she is indeed evil and a disgrace to the human race. Stop living in lala land.

      Jenifer, thanks for your comment 😆

      I allowed your comment to show what bile filled, hateful types support Abbott and his LNP 😦

      You really are a sick, sad, bitter and twisted little individual that is horribly deluded. 🙄

      People like you are the very reason why we must not let Abbott and his merry band of scum sucking bottom feeders destroy the future for our country and our children, both of which you obviously have no regard for.

      I am sure that along with that font of all wisdom and knowledge M Smith 😆 you also listen to bolt, Jones and that other perennial moron Hadley , and quite frankly you deserve them all 😦 and Abbott too.

      Don’t bother replying, as you have already proved my point…. sick 😦 , and wasted enough of my time.



  2. Yes Jenifer, Joolya sucks. Just not as much as Mr-Rabbit, so l will put Mr-Rabbits zombie last on my ballot. l have seen no reason to do otherwise.

      730reportland, welcome to my blog, 😀

      I doubt very much that she is still visiting here, probably basking in the gems of enlightenment from her heros Smith, Bolt, Jones and Hadley, either that or she is buried under their piles of Bullshit 😀

      Cheers 🙂 😀 😆

    Just discovered this, loved it,
    Stick it right to the bastards mate.
    Onwards and Upwards !


    • Truth Seeker says:

      cornlegend, Thanks for that 😀 that was one of the reasons that I reposted bits of it, to let those that hadn’t seen it know that it was here.

      As I said, one of my favourites 😀

      Cheers 🙂 😀 😆

    The pus bus indeed – very visual Truth Seeker. Boils need to be drawn or lanced. Or is that hung, drawn & quartered?

    Truth Seeker, could you please do a poem with the words ‘Goebbels mind massage’ or ‘Murdoch mind massage’ in it somewhere. I used ‘Goebbels mind massage’ today (in relation to MSM in Oz) on a CT site – to reply to an *idiot – and the feedback from others was was generally positive. Someone said I had given them lots of food for thought. Thank G-d some are still open to rational thought.

    *misinformed person


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Tinfoilhatter Thanks for your comment 😀

      I could possibly have used one of them in my latest “Abbott’s Puppet Masters”, as it’s right on subject, but that ship has sailed so I’ll have to wait till it’s relevant, but I’ll certainly keep it in mind, as they are both good lines 😎

      The only problem is rhyming with massage, not that it’s impossible, but depending on the context it may have to be rearranged as in “massaging of the mind” etc 😀

      No promises, but I’ll see what I can do 😆 , and if I can, I’ll let you know 😀

      Cheers 😀 😎
