Who’d a thunk it?

Who’d a thunk it?images

With all the serious stuff going on over the last couple of weeks, I thought it was time for some light relief, so here’s my take on LNP lies, spin and general stupidity   😉

Who’d a thunk it?


In this wide brown land Australia

Tony Abbott is the bloke

But who’d a thunk he’d make PM

The man’s a bloody joke

Many thought he was a thug

A rabid right wing git

And Abbott proved his doubters right

Crikey! Who’d a thunk it?


He spoke in slogans, spin and lies

While Murdoch had his back

With his media empire trying to hide

Abbott talking through his crack

They fought minority Government

With a view that we should dump it

But they failed, despite their dirty tricks

Who’d a bloody thunk it?


So the government ran to its full term

And the election date was set

But with the help of the ALP

We’ve now got Murdoch’s pet

Cos there were some within the ALP

That didn’t give a crumpet

As they sought to bring the party down

And who’d a freakin’ thunk it?


So despite a good record, Labor lost

And Abbott won the day

He gloated, and then true to form

He bravely ran away

To formalise his cabinet

From those who love a junket

With Abbott as the worst offender

Shock, horror, who’d a thunk it?


There’s Brandis and Bananaby

And Julie Bishop too

Who like to go to weddings

Subsidised by me and you

There’s book collectors and footy fans

All rorters, Who’d a thunk it

But Abbott’s still the master of

The taxpayer funded junket


With the cabinet finally all sworn in

They tried to make a start

By implementing tow backs

That policy brain fart

But Susilo said “We won’t have that

So like it or just lump it,”

Then Abbott started back pedalling

And who’d a bloody thunk it?


He said that tow backs weren’t the plan

And to that end he tried

To dismiss the video evidence

That clearly shows he lied

But many ministers rallied round

All trying to debunk it

The LNP all telling lies

I must say, who’d a thunk it?


And Hockey’s budget emergency

Just didn’t come to pass

As economists from everywhere said

He’s talking through his arse

And he didn’t just talk the economy down

He really tried to Junk it

But it turned out he was talking shit

No really, who’d a thunk it?


He said we need big surpluses

And stop the wasteful spending

But the thing we know is Sloppy Joe

Wont provide a happy ending

Cos he talked about our “massive” debt

So big your couldn’t jump it

Then he raised the ceiling and the debt

And no one would a thunk it


The two things we can know for sure

Are Abbot and his cromies

Are just economic vandals and

Environmental phonies

Abbott once said climate change is crap

Now he’ll bare his chest and thump it

About bush walks proving his greenie cred

I wonder who’d a thunk it?


So with lies and spin and secrecy

They’ll run this country down

With Abbott playing PM and

Sloppy Joe, the fiscal clown

As they slash and burn the economy

And in three years they’ll have sunk it

And none of this surprises me

Cos I’d a bloody thunk it!

    who would have thunk that this would be my favourite one of all your classics ?

    I thunk I luv it 😀
    No, I don’t thunk it, I know it 🙂


  2. Bighead1883 says:

    So thunkful you wrote that Truthy
    You missed no one and shared your praise thunkfully
    Once again thunk you.


  3. diannaart says:

    We all thunked it before, but didn’t anticipate the painful reality of such thunking.

    One of your best – but I always thunk that.

    Thanks, Truthie


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Dianna, thanks for your comment 😎 and kind words 😀

      Yes, many of us did thunk it, but didn’t realise the full suite of painful ramifications of the reality of that Thunking 😯

      Cheers 😀

    Truth Seeker,
    It is said `many a true word is spoken in jest` and you have certainly nailed it.
    A great read.


  5. richo says:

    Nailed it.


  6. diannaart says:

    Thought y’all would appreciate this (with all accolades to, quite rightly, Fiona Katauskas)


  7. olddavey says:

    Saw an embarrassing vid of J Bishop arriving in Indon. She was asked s%omething about being welcome and went on with a long spiel accompanied by staring straight ahead like a sock puppet. The correct answer should have been “No”.
    Who’d a thunk it?
    And little Grunt has been looking worried and raving on about electricity prices and if the full 9% is not passed on by the energy companies it’ll all be Billy Shortones fault.
    Who’d a fuckin’ thunk that?


    • melaine says:

      Hey olddavey 🙂 Had to chuckle when she seemed so proud of the fact it was her 3rd visit to Indonesia since becoming FM… WTF 😯


      • Truth Seeker says:

        Olddavey 😀 yes mate, they’re a sad lot 😦 and horribly deluded 😯

        Mel, maybe she’s overwhelmed by the fact that she doesn’t have to claim it? “:shock:

        Cheers 😀

    Purrfect 😆

    Well! who’d a thunk, in times like this, when things are looking grim
    We’d Seek the Truth and find it HERE…. and even share a grin?

    Sharp as tacks, their minds are keen, with cunning, wile and wit
    And Truthy’s rhyme just sums it up – a witty, wicked HIT!

    When Abbott and his gang took power, we knew “We’re sunk by them!”
    “But if they thunk we’re givin’ up, well…. They can thunk again!”

    So, Time will Pass, it always does, and all may not be sunk’yet
    ‘Cos Truthy’s out to save the day and really….Who’d a thunk it?


  10. cornlegend says:

    One thing about the anti LNP crowd.
    They are bloody poetic.
    good stuff both you and Truthy


  11. Gilly says:

    Hmmm, too many truths spoken in jest. Methinks much more material to be supplied, even without any announcements.
    I love the image of TA back peddling very dangerous considering he now has a mandate..


  12. Bighead1883 says:

    Truthy,Here`s what the AWB boys should have got over their Saddam dealings
    This is over beef quotas graft..
    And one of the comments from “cmon really”
    Question on Indonesian corruption. Why do a lot of Indonesians still see Sukarno and Suharto as heroes? And why do the Suharto’s still have a massive wealth when everyone knows they were corrupt as satin himself? If this was Australia, every single asset would be taken back by the government for the people. Cheap cooking oil, cheap rice and petrol, etc etc, this still doesn’t change the fact that Indonesia’s previous dictators RAPED INDONESIA FOR THEIR OWN BENEFIT and should be seen as such.
    They don`t know what Rabbitty Dabbitty Do has planned for us,well we are open for business.


  13. Bighead1883 says:

    Truthy,here`s some WA home grown for the masses.
    This is for all Occupiers.

    Just how aware are we of the propaganda of perception
    That is carried on well after the election
    We`re slowly eroding all sense of humanity
    Where the shallowness of self is the only reality
    The neo conservative house of greed
    Wants you to believe that it`s more that you need
    The enemy is the one that may take from yore
    The things that you`ve worked generationally for
    The lifestyle,the job,the future you`ve planned for
    Because you see that it`s you and me who they`ve come for
    They do not want a caring,sharing or fair society
    The I`ll be right jack mentality to them fits a nicety
    So you see in the future we`re not going to need you
    The TPP has been invented to covertly govern and screen you
    We do not care that you vote or you rally
    Our corporate police are who with you`ll sally
    They will deny you any humanity or rights
    And split open your head for the barest of slights
    And those of you who survive and take this to court
    We`ll show who owns you and all your efforts are fraught
    Because we have a mandate to cheat lie and deceive
    Now we`ll give Rupert all the tools that he needs
    To finish the job on all you brainwashed and dumb dww.ee.bs.

    The Libs elected by Media and luck
    After 3 days were coming unstuck
    With their Policies planned
    Getting right out of hand
    Caused by all Abbott’s lying the Shmuck.

    In his efforts the public to win
    Tony uses political spin
    But it all falls flat
    As the wing nutted rat
    Dribbles usual shit down his chin.

    Trident, tail and sinister leer
    Tony Abbott is something to fear
    As he sings Satan’s song
    It won’t be too long
    Before horns will start to appear.

    If your mystified of how, where and when
    The human race started, well then
    Read Charles Darwin’s Theory
    And if you still want to query
    Take a good look at Abbott PM.

    To all the idiots that voted for Tony
    So much for his spin and baloney
    It’s been proven he tickles the peter
    And like some other poli’s a cheater
    The greedy wing nutted phony.

    An expert who studies the brain
    Found in Canberra did a rarity reign
    “I once thought,” said he
    “I’d find one bright MP,
    But it seems my search was in vain.”

    “H” stands for Hockey and Hypocrite too
    Our make believe Treasurer who hasn’t a clue
    In that head of solid bone
    There’s just nobody home
    Like the rest of the Liberal Zoo.

    Scott Morrison’s arrogance and ire
    With an ego that couldn’t be higher
    Shows he hasn’t respected
    The poor fools who elected
    His gang of misogynist liars.

    Julie Bishop with her drop dead stares
    Just ain’t suited for Foreign Affairs
    But in a way it’s real cool
    For the po faced old fool
    Will fuck up the Libs so who cares.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Frontad84, thanks for another of your fine rhymes 😀 Good to see you’re still writing 😎

      Keep up the good work 😀

      Cheers 😀


      • frontad84 says:

        Thanks Truth Seeker the feeling is certainly mutual and yes, been a bit quiet for a while but I am firing up again since we now have such a bunch of arsoles attempting to stuff up Australia.


        • Truth Seeker says:

          Frontad84, yes mate, for the creative mind they are the gift that keeps on giving 😀 and as far as stuffing up Australia, they are giving it a red hot go 😡

          Glad you’re firing again mate 😎 maintain the rage 😡

          Cheers 😀
