Tony Abbott, the LNP and the truth?

The more I listen to Abbott and his LNP, the more I realise that truth is a foreign concept to them.

Tony Abbott, the LNP and the truth? 


When Tony Abbott and his libs

Say Julia Gillard lies

They are showing their hypocrisy

As they spout THEIR porky pies

About a price on carbon that they’ve called

The PM’s toxic tax

While dismissing all the experts

And ignoring all the facts


Claiming massive rises in the price

Of everything we buy

But he’s contradicted by the facts

And his arguments just won’t fly

And his cohorts think that lies become truth

If they’re often enough repeated

But it’s their credibility, not the ALP

That by their lies, will be defeated


The lies they’ve told are big and bold

Seeking to rewrite History

For the sake of Abbotts grand ambition

Based on inherent stupidity

Saying poor Whyalla’s gunna go

She’ll be wiped right off the map

Proving yet again the man’s insane

And full of naught, but crap


And his wrecking ball had a nasty fall

Landing squarely on his toe

After missing the economy

And rolling sloppy Joe

Who was never good with figures

But a wrecking ball, is he

Spreading lies and misinformation

About the oz economy


Then there’s the tech head Malcolm Turnbull

Spreading more of Abbotts lies

Claiming fibre to the node, is the way for us

Proving on him, there are no flies

As when it comes to his own investments

Fibre to the home is the way to go

But when it comes to giving us the best

The Abbott just says… NO


And the rest of Abbotts mendacious mates

Make up his motley crew

Of sloganeers and farting heads

They’re dishonest through and through

With his deputy the Bishop

Searching constantly for proof

That her sour looks are justified

Cos she’s been violated… by the truth


And he plots and schemes to fulfil his dreams

Of his perfect Liberal state

Based on Howards worn out policies

His mentor and his mate

But the world’s moved on without him

And the Liberals fractured parts

Leaving a monstrous policy vacuum

And the Abbotts stale… brain farts


He’ll promise us a banquet

But all that’s on his plate

Is his pugilistic nature

And  his body builders gait

With his numbers falling weekly

And his credibility shot

And the murmurings of dissent

Amongst the lying liberal lot


But the right wing power brokers 

Still think Abbot is their man

Pushing spin and propaganda

Just because the bastards can

But he’s not a leaders arsehole

He is just a right wing thug

With the body of an old athlete

And the brainpower… of a slug


And despite support from billionaires

And mates like Alan Jones

The Abbotts time is nearly done

With no meat left, only bones

And the history books will tell the tale

Of an election his to take

But he lost because all the people saw

Was a…. monumental…. fake

    Hi Truth Seeker!
    Sorry to be pedantic but it’s Whyalla with a ‘h’, and ‘dissent’. 🙂
    Love your work, and do you put these poems to music? You should!


  2. Truth Seeker says:

    Hey C@tmomma, welcome to my site and thanks for your comment and kind words 😀
    Thanks also for the corrections, sometimes when writing verse, it’s easy to get caught up in the writing and overlook the spelling 😳

    I do put some of my poems to music, as I have done with “The Willow Wood Man”, posted earlier, and others which I am yet to post, but I haven’t done this with any of my political poems, as there is a lot of work in the process, and I just don’t have the time at the moment. 😦

    I do however appreciate your interest and will keep it in mind if time allows 😀

    Cheers 🙂 😀

    BTW, I love your work too 😎

    nice one Truth Seeker, can i nominate you as one of the Fighting Fifths ‘BARDS’


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Hey Bob, great to see you here and welcome.

      Thanks for your comment, and I didn’t know that there were any nominations for the fighting fifths bards, 😀 But I would be honoured 😀 😎 to be nominated by one who is a regular recipient of the prestigious “Cranky Pants” award 😎 😀

      Cheers 🙂 😀 😆

    Another great one. Love your optimism, if we only had to fight him we’d rock it in. The media is our biggest problem and one that is not going away.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Gravel, thanks for your kind words and continued support 😀 , and yes your are absolutely right, but the fighting fifth is gaining ground, and hopefully “The Guardian” will fire up soon to give some real balance in the MSM. 😎

      The trickle of dissent with the MSM is becoming a torrent, and hopefully by the time the real election campaign starts, will become a tsunami, forcing them to tell the truth….. What a novelty 😯

      Cheers 😀

    It is all about networking and linking, and that is growing. Old fashion methods, that have worked over the centuries, hooked into today’s technology.



  6. Catching up says:

    TS Get some to song with witty and catching tunes. You probably do not remember :Its Time”, but it caught on. It was extremely effective in getting the message heard. It was also positive.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Cu, thanks for your comments and the “like”, i greatly appreciate your support.

      WRT songs, I am just starting the new school term with my students, and hoping to get a few more since some have dropped out this term, and with all my writing and other commitments, it makes it difficult to find time, but having said that I will see if time permits as we move closer to the election to write something simple and record it 😀

      Keep up your great work Cu, you do a great job! 😀

      Cheers 🙂 😀


  7. Catching up says:

    Once again we are getting the deficit. How long can one bash a dead cause.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      I am watching QT as we speak, and I think that they think that if they flog that dead horse hard enough they will be able to ride it again 😀

      What a joke they are, and we are paying them for this rubbish 😯

      Cheers 😀


  8. Catching up says:

    TS, yes, I do believe I do a good job. The proof of this, is how I draw the ire of our visitors.

    Surely the Opposition have more to talk about deficits and PM lying.


  9. Truth Seeker says:

    Cu,yes it’s always a good sign of how well you’re doing 😀

    and they’ve got nothin’ 😀 😆

    Cheers 😀

    Hi mate,
    Great piece. I can’t do the rhyming thing in my verse, (but you know that).
    Love your stuff. I can only be prosy, not rosy when I have a dig.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Hey Whit, thanks for your kind words, and comments.
      I have to say don’t sell yourself short, your articles are great, and you have a very unique style for your poetry that is full of emotion and imagery, and although I am not usually a huge fan of free verse, I find your poems and your style most enjoyable and thought provoking, “evocative” 😎 so keep up the good work within the ranks of the creative left 😀 Your country needs you 😎

      Cheers 🙂 😀 😆
