Abbott off and running?

Abbott off and running?

Abbott off and running?

Abbott off and running?

With just three weeks down, of the Abbott regime, and the country being kept in the dark about what’s going on, I thought it was time for a poem, to take our minds off being treated like idiots in a cynical attempt, by the LNP, to try their  “Nothing to see here” tactics.   😯

So here it is:

Abbott off and running?


He stood alone, at the podium

The victory his to savour

But his arrogant smirk

Hid the scared little jerk

And the cost of his boss, Murdoch’s favour.


With his wife and daughters down below

Looking up at him adoringly

In their virginal white

His girls basked in the light

Of their dad who thinks they are sexy


And his mum was there, it was her who said

He would either be PM or Pope

Which was not based talent

Or his nature so gallant

Cos the man is a dope on a rope


An original thought hasn’t passed through his head

With ambition the man’s only driver

He doesn’t have smarts

Only silly brain farts

But he sure is a major conniver


And with Uncle Rupert pulling the strings

The Abbott was good to go

But instead of leading his rabble

He jumped in the saddle

And for nine, long, days was a no show


Then he fronted a presser to announce his new cabinet

Full of men, but of women lacking wealth

I’m disappointed he said

Couldn’t get it through his head

That he’d chosen the people himself


So his mob got sworn in, with their usual spin

That their mandate was perfectly clear

But to the LNP’s shame

Any mandate they claim

Will be hanging on James Ashby’s rear


But with Brandis in charge of our justice

They will give our court system a poke

As they did with their Peta

Who blew high on the meter

But proved justice, to them, is a joke


And with Bishop in charge of our foreign affairs

Amongst world leaders, the message is shared;

Disagree at your peril

Cos this minister’s feral

And you’ll probably end up, death stared


Indonesians are already unhappy

With Mss Bishop and Morrison too

Cos their policy plan

Should be dumped in the can

And be flushed with the rest of the poo


While the LNP’s own three star general

Tries to make their boat policies work

All the numbers are hidden

And the truth is forbidden

By the minister, Scott Morrison, the jerk


And Mal Turnbull the internet master

With his own ‘sure investments’ OS

Has determined that we

Don’t deserve Fibre for free

But instead his technological mess


With a node box on every street corner

Joining fibre and copper inside

Unreliable and slow

But they don’t want to know

Cos the truth and their costing’s they’ll hide


And the budget emergency seems to have passed

With the government, now LNP

But that isn’t quite right

Cos the economy’s plight

Is now handled by their Joe Hockey


And he makes up the numbers to suit their own plans

And to justify all of their cuts

And he says, we’ll do well

In his version of hell

But the truth is the man’s bloody nuts


So with just three weeks gone of the Abbott’s first term

And the Abbott nowhere to be found

You’d be forgiven for thinking

That his platform is sinking

Faster than the boats, that he can’t turn around


And the juornos that lied about Labor

Are Bogged down, with few stories to tell

Cos the Abbott was bluffing

With his platform of  nothing

And now they’ve got nothing to sell


So the Murdoch machine’s slowly breaking

Cos they’re not getting much they can spin

And their last great hoorah

May be seen from afar

As the time… that they helped… Abbott win.

    Another good’un, Truthie. 🙂 Congratulations. How you come up with these masterful poems is a delightful mystery to me. 😉 Then again this sorry excuse for a government will continue to give you plenty of ammo. 😆


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Joy, thanks for your comment and kind words 😀

      To be honest Joy I would much rather see our country in safe hands, and have nothing to write about 😯 But there’s no chance of that in the foreseeable future 😀

      So I’ll just have to keep writing 😀

      Cheers 😀


      • joy cooper says:

        As would I, Truthie. 🙂 The country is in very perilous hands at the moment. Even the dismissal of Credlin’s drink driving charges (found guilty with no conviction) doesn’t bode well. It’s Coalition business as usual.

        My beloved is a good decent Aussie bloke & he loathes Abbott with a passion. Neither of us can understand why some people “like” Abbott because they see him as a “real Australian man”!?!? Especially some young women. 😯 Perhaps they equate the constant wearing of Hi-Vis vests, Lycra &/or budgie smugglers with Aussie manhood. Have news for them. 😆


        • Truth Seeker says:

          Joy, yes it’s got me beat too 😦

          My wife says he looks like a man who is nothing but a sleazy philanderer 😯 and I have to say that there is definitely something not quite right about him 😉

          Cheers 😀

    Hi Truth Seeker,
    Another great production, I do admire your talent! Please keep up your good work, you say it all!


  3. richo says:

    Another good one Truthie, love your work.
    I am astounded, scared, searing with anger and rage the secrecy and arrogance of the born to rule class that believe they are entitled to hide what they want. Didn’t we learn anything from Tampa, Cildren Overboard, AWB, IRAQ, Workchoices.

    I too am astounded that anybody likes him, he is just a rampaging arrogant non-listening to anything that is against his opinion twit.


  4. Fed up says:

    Day nine.

    Abbott away, thinking hard, has still not thought of something worthwhile to tell us.

    Poor Mr Turnbull, did not find that smoking gun. The figures he does not believe.
    Those on the board of the NBNCo, are by what he said, liars.

    Day eight had Pyne telling us , the standards in our universities are being diminished by those who are allow in from lower income areas. This he cannot allow.

    Wonder what this, day nine will bring,

    Good work TS.

    I thought once the election was over, many could take a rest. It appears that is not so.

    Is this the first government, that has not had a honey moon from day one.

    Every day, he manages to get even with a new group.

    All that has been changed, since the days of Howard, has to be reverted. No wonder Abbott does not have time.. to emerged from the bunker, to talk to us, the lowly voters.


  5. Fed up says:

    Joy, that is the question, I do not believe any like him. Have heard very few say so. Could be why their spin factory has had to work so hard, telling us what a great guy he is.

    I wonder when greets the Prince, will the girls be taken along in white to greet him

    From what he said, he has to get them married, so they can leave home.

    Then maybe not, as it could lead to ranga grand daughters. That would nt be to his liking, a red head in the family.

    Wonder when he announces the next GG. Maybe when he sees the Prince.

    Wonder who invited the Prince. Sounds lke something Rudd would do.


  6. Fed up says:

    Why, in every photo we now see, does he look like a haunted man. Does he believe that Turnbull is coming ti get him.

    Something I would never have believed, as I believed that Turnbull had his day. That PC on the NBNCo, makes me think otherwise. Turnbull was spinning, but not too sure who he was out to con, us or Abbott.


  7. Gillian McAllister says:

    FANTASTIC!!!! what else can I say – your words ring so true!! I don’t know how we will all survive the next 3 years of an Abbot lying Government!!!!!


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Gillian McAllister, welcome to my site 😀 and thanks for your comment and kind words 🙂

      I think most of us are worried what will happen next with this mob? 😯 so you are in good company here 😀

      Thanks again 😎

      Cheers 😀


  8. Fed up says:

    Richo, seeing your name there, I just had a thought, we have not had the Labor turncoat, Richo on our ABC since the election. Wonder if he is no longer required.
    Sorry, Richo, I do not mean any insult.

    I seen yesterday, they had Abbott’s sister on. Is any thing sacred to this blokey mob.


  9. Fed up says:

    Tony has something to say????????????? iN Melbourne, ABC 24.

    Obviously the penny has dropped, while he is in his bunker, others are filling the void.

    Nothing new. Just the same old slogans.

    The carbon…red….tape…power bills for business………..

    Hard at work for us. They are getting things done.


  10. brickbob says:

    Hi Truthie and thanks for another wonderful poem as they are one of the few things that keep me sane. I have tried adjusting my set,have tried adjusting the volume,but the voice just keeps telling me that their is nothing wrong with it and i am just watching the Twilight Zone and you know what? i think the voice is right but the trouble is the show never seems to end”’.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Brickbob, thanks for that 😀 it’s good to know that my poems can have some benefit for you health and well being 😯

      Mate, I know how you feel, as sometimes it feels like a nightmare that i should wake up from, but can’t 😦

      Writing my poems helps me stay sane? too 😀

      Cheers 😀


  11. cornlegend says:

    Cos the man is a dope on a rope
    Mate, what more needs to be said


  12. Kelly says:

    Great poem. Liberals policy is to divide and conquer they will start doing things subtly and try to split unions and people. We need to keep signing petitions, and speaking to our local members we have two choices shut or speak up and I for sure as hell am going to speak up.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Kelly, welcome to my site, 😀 and thanks for your comment and kind words 😎

      I agree with your assessment, and love your passion 😎

      Keep up the fight 😀

      Cheers 😀


  13. Gilly says:

    Good to laugh at the joke we have as PM, Thanks Truthie. By the way the photos of TA suggest the budgie needs feeding.


  14. gomuki says:

    First time I’ve seen your site and I must admit I just adore your poem! I don’t know how you do it, but every line hits the nail on the head, wish it was Abbot’s head


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Gomuki, welcome to my site, 😀 and thanks for your comment and kind words 😎

      If you like poetry, you will find a few more under political poems 😀

      I too would like it to be Abbott’s head 😀

      Cheers 😀


  15. Fed up says:

    According to Bolt, it can be done. Abbott sending the asylum seekers back. I wonder why he is only one saying this.

    Could it be, that the Navy is acting under arrangements put in place, in agreement with Jakarta.

    Also claiming that all he has said on climate change is proven,

    Do not believe I can watch him out today.


    • melaine says:

      You certainly deserve an award for sitting thru the Dolt’s diatribe Fed up! I for one thank you for the wonderful service you provide to all of us with your constant updates here and over at CW. You help me get thru my days.


  16. Fed up says:

    melaine, never found hi so hard to listen to. I am fast forwarding most.
