The evil Prince Tones.

imagesThe evil Prince Tones.

The theme of this poem was inspired by one of our valued commenters  “Olddavey”  , who referred to Brandis as the “Sheriff of Nottingham”,  which I thought was an apt description, and very funny,   😆    so thanks mate   😀   and here’s what your comment inspired.

The evil Prince Tones.


When the evil Prince Tones, hatched his plans of deceit

To gain power, he’d pay any cost

And he gathered a crew who’s scruples were few

And who’s morals were permanently lost

And he dubbed his mate Brandis the Sheriff of Nottingham

The highest law man in the land

And he gave him the job of protecting his mob

From the courts, and the laws as they stand


So he hit the ground running, for the law he was gunning

And he started with Peta the fair?

She was drunk on her horse, but his reference of course

Got her off, with a slapped derrière.

With the magistrate swayed by the submission he made

And a possible threat to her job

Cos the man has no class, he’s a number one arse

And a completely despicable knob


Even when he’s caught out, with a trough full of snout

He’ll employ every trick in the book

And though the law is his game, he’ll bring nothing but shame

To the job, cos his morals are crook

But he’s got Tony’s back, like old Rupert the Black

Who controls all the media in town

Though his power is waning, as the world is complaining

About the methods employed by this clown


But he owns Tony’s arse, making his rule a farce

With the evil Prince only a puppet

Though he tries to be King, the really sad thing

Is he looks more like Ernie the Muppet

And Peta the fair, is also right there

Pulling strings just as hard as she can

That’s why he couldn’t lose her, even though she’s a boozer

She’s the real strength behind Tones the man?


And his second in charge, is an attack dog writ large

And a woman as well, we are told

Although Bishop’s her name, downright evil’s her game

With a heart and a soul that’s been sold

She’s a policy dill, but they say she can kill

With one glance of her Bishop death stare

But it’s all just for show, cos the smart people know

That the woman just isn’t all there


She’s a lawyer by trade, who’ll unleash a tirade

Full of vitriol, untruths and spin

But the truth isn’t in her, though Tones thinks she’s a winner

And there’s naught else of substance within

Like Joe Hockey the green, who is nasty and mean

And is there to take care of the gold

Though he finds math no fun, he can make 21

With his pants down if it isn’t too cold


And his ideas for spending are all based on truth bending

As he’ll fudge all the figures to suit

With his policies bad, and priorities mad

Most economists would give him the boot

But he’s Tones favored bloke, to the rest, quite a joke

Cos he’s just contradictions galore

And to him, math is boring, so his main aim’s point scoring

But he can’t even add up that score


Sir Malcolm of Turnbull is engaged just to spurn all

The experts and facts that don’t fit

With the thrust of his plans for a string and two cans

Which he knows in his heart is just shit

And the speeds that he’ll proffer are the slowest on offer

The equivalent of walking, a course

But for his own personal greed, he’ll invest in the speed

Of a good thoroughbred racing horse


With Mss Bishop the token, for a party that’s broken

And Prince Tones being told what to do

And innumerate Joe pointing which way to go

We are sure to end up in the poo

And the Sheriff caught scamming for his mates wedding planning

With Barnaby the Simple, as well

And they think it’s legit to claim all kinds of shit

When supporting a shock jock from hell


So let’s all raise our glasses, to toast the demise of these arses

The ones who think they’re born to rule

Cos their DNA’s lacking, and they all deserve sacking

These rejects from the human gene pool

So the scene is now set, for the worst government yet

Led by Prince Tones, in lycra, too tight

And in his budgies we’re gleaning, a little left leaning

But his policies… are still… rabid right

    Had me chuckling before my first cuppa of the day!!! Many thanks for your tireless work Truthie… (and your muse olddavey for the inspiration for this one!). Got the friends in NZ onto your site and they are loving it…


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Mel, thanks for your comment and support 😎 and thanks for sharing with your friends 😀

      Glad you got a chuckle out of it 😀 that makes it all worthwhile 😀

      Cheers 😀


  2. Fed up says:

    Cannot but agree with all that is writ.

    Yes, lets raise our glass, to a better future when all will be gone,

    I only hope that by then, we can stil be a part of that Asian Century.

    The one, Gillard worked so hard to prepare us for.

    Trouble is there is no place for demolition experts there.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Fed up, thanks for your comment 😎

      Tones and his motley crew, cannot be considered demolition experts, just demolition zealots, trying to demolish everything, good or bad, simply because someone else came up with it 😯

      But even in one term the damage will be extensive, and take a long time to fix 😦

      Keep up the good work 😀

      Cheers 😀

    Hi Truthie and thanks for another great poem,i dont know how you do it but keep doing it.
    Barnaby the Simple”’ now that is a classic.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Brickbob, thanks for that 😀 I’m glad you liked it 😎

      Yes I thought that “Barnaby the Simple” was fitting for the theme of the poem, and for the man himself 😯

      Cheers 😀


  4. bundysmum says:

    Brilliant, Truthy. The way this lot are going you are going to be kept busy documenting in prose every vicous,nasty and derelict action they perform.


  5. olddavey says:

    Nice one Truthie, thanks for the honourable mention.
    George might also be the Sherriff of Rottenham.
    Barnaby the Simple – if he had a few more brains he’d be a half wit,


  6. orangefox says:

    Nailed it again.
    Also I particularly liked your ‘dope on a rope’ quip of your last poem. Brilliant.
    It reminded me of a cartoon drawing showing Abbott as a dog tied to a street pole with the sign NO, mon – fri, 9 – 6.
    That cartoonist is so good but I don’t know his name. They are usually colour drawings with a lot of detail.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Orangefox, thanks for that 😀

      Yes, I think Cornlegend also picked up on that line too 😀

      There are some very clever cartoonists out there, unfortunately I’m shocking with names, so sadly I can’t help in identifying any of them 😦 the only ones that I can remember are; cartoonmick, who is linked in my blogroll, and pickering… for all the wrong reasons 👿

      Cheers 😀


  7. cornlegend says:

    Good one mate,
    Dope on a rope ” in the last one,
    “Though he tries to be King, the really sad thing
    Is he looks more like Ernie the Muppet”
    is my pick in this one.
    Still in Sydney, close to Westmead.
    Grandkids coming up to stay at the Motel tonight, their mum is taking them to see One Direction, tomorrow night.
    Good to have a bit of cheer,
    See you soon
    Cheers to all.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Cornie, thanks mate 😀 that was the line that appealed to me also 😯

      Hope all is going well, mate, and Kate and Mel send their best wishes to you and your family. 🙂 we are all thinking of you, and look forward to your return, when all is back to normal 😀

      Take care mate, and our thoughts and best wishes are with you all 😀

      Cheers 😀

    Another welcome rhyme, helps mark the time, Truthie


  9. Fed up says:

    Those that lie, must die.

    Well that is what Abbott said about PM Gillard.


  10. orangefox says:

    The cartoonist I was talking about is David Rowe in the Australian Finacial Review. Go to this site and you can see all the great illustrations if you missed any.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Orangefox, thanks for that 😀 he’s certainly done some fantastic work 😎

      I’ll have to try to remember his name 😯 or at least where the link is 😀

      Cheers 😀

    Here’s a little story you may not have heard.


  12. olddavey says:

    Bugger, here it is this time.

    Malcolm Turnbull gets a call from Tony. “I’ve got a problem,” says Phoney.

    “What’s the matter?” asks Mr Broadband.

    “Well, you told me to keep busy at work, so, I got a jigsaw puzzle, but it’s too hard. None of the pieces fit together and I can’t find any edges.”

    “What’s it a picture of?” asks The Man Who Would Be PM.

    “A big rooster,” replies Shit For Brains.

    “All right,” sighs The Prince of Point Piper, “I’ll come over and have a look.” When he gets there Knucklehead points at the jigsaw on his desk.

    Mr Smooth looks at the desk and then turns to The Grub and says, “For crying out loud, Idiot – put the corn flakes back in the box.”


  13. They say the pen is mighter than the sword, so you have just proved.I have enjoyed your poetry for a while, only now having the courage to de-lurk and tell you so. Thank you for brightening my evening and please, keep writing


    • Truth Seeker says:

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

      I am glad that you like my musings, and I hope that now that you have made your first comment, you will feel free to add to our conversations again, when you feel the urge. 😀

      It is great to get positive feedback, and it makes all the efforts worth while, as without all the lurkers and commenters, there would not be the incentive to do what I do, so thank you for your support 😎

      And you are welcome here anytime 😀

      Cheers 😀
