The adults are in-charge?

The adults are in-charge?

There you go Bronny, that'l boost your retirement funds.

Tony, your breath smells like Rupert’s bum… I told you not to inhale!

I don’t know about you, but for me there are certain right wing slogans that really irritate.

One that I find particularly annoying is “Crystal Clear”, but the one that I find most offensive is “The Adults are in-charge”, the implication being that what came before was nothing but childish stupidity, and they will be so much better…   😯

So I thought that it would be a fitting foundation, upon which to build the first poem of the year, and this is it.

The Adults are in charge?


When Abbott made the statement that

“The Adults are in charge”

It was another meaningless slogan

Like ‘Small boats… and ocean large’

Or ‘When it comes to funding Gonski

We say confidently… Snap!’

But Abbott’s promise, like his belief

In Climate change… “Is crap!”


And when referring to “The Adults”

Abbott couldn’t mean the speaker

Cos Bronny’s in her second childhood

Like a twelve year old truth tweaker

Changing the rules to suit herself

Whilst wearing helmet hair

And bringing into disrepute

The honoured, speakers chair


And “Adult” Chrissy? … Surely not?

He can’t mean Chrissy Pyne

Who needs to answer… “do you want cheese

And crackers, with that…whine?”

He’s like the little spoilt kid

Who runs to tell his mummy

And when he doesn’t get his way

He’ll spit a mega dummy


And Scott “Hello Sailor” Morrison?

The Abbott must be joking?

He’s like the local naughty boy

Who annoys, with constant poking

And hides the truth, and just won’t tell

And shows his lack of class

And he’s not the “Adult” promised

In fact he’s not an adults Arse


Julie Bishop’s not an “adult”

She’s a very naughty girl

Who, although her death stares never work

She’ll still give them a whirl

With her prepubescent attitude

Of selfishness and spite

She’s like the “Girls school” bully

Always spoiling for a fight


And Sloppy Joe’s another one

Who’s adult cred is shot

He screamed blue murder about the debt

Then he added, his own lot

On top of what’s already owed

And he didn’t bat an eyelid

Instead he blamed the ALP

Like the bully blames the shy kid


On climate change you’ve got Greg Hunt

An adult?… Not a hope

He treats us all like idiots

But he’s the raving dope

Who’s lost in his portfolio

He hasn’t got a clue

Just adds to global warming

By speaking heaps of cattle poo


And Turnbull’s not an adults bum

Cos he doesn’t have the guts

To stand up for his principles

Against the right wing nuts

But he’ll do the right thing for himself

To make his mega bucks

As he sells us down the river

For an NBN that sucks


And Banaby’s a classic

He’s a kiddie through and through

With his little pearls of wisdom

Worth as much as doggie do

But for him it doesn’t matter

That he never makes much sense

Cos he’s owned by Gina Rinehart

And he’s sitting on her fence


So where are all the “adults”

That you promised from the start?

Or was that just an another lie?

Another great brain fart?

And the crew you chose wouldn’t grow up

If you sent them all to classes

Cos they’re spoilt little rich kids

And members of… the Ruling… Arses


The one who would be King   :lol:

    Good effort. Yes, the adults are hard to find.


  2. bighead1883 says:

    Absolutely marvelous Truthy,it`s always amazed me that the MSM would not out this childish “the adults are in charge now” statement,or prior election ” we will be an adult government”.
    You Did.M8


  3. Truth Seeker says:

    Biggy, thanks mate 😀

    Yes it’s sad that the MSM still won’t do their jobs, 😦 but if they won’t, then we will 😯

    Cheers 😀


  4. khtagh says:

    Abbott’s face looks like Rupert’s arse too.


  5. melaine says:

    You certainly nailed that one Truthie 😀
    The ‘dolts are definitely in charge 😯
    heaven help us all….


  6. Fed up says:

    This is how the kids play. I wish they would stay indoors, away7 from us and the public.


  7. Consider says:

    Is there ANYONE out there? HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!


  8. Consider says:

    Thanks Truthy, I felt a severe panic attack coming on there for a minute. Surely this mob can`t last must longer before the un-washed start doing something before it`s all over for us. Just like what is happening with climate change.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Mate, at this stage I think it’s up to us 😯 but more and more people are turning to the net for their info. 😀

      We have just passed 100,000 hits, which in the blogging scheme of things is still fairly small, but the numbers are building all the time 😀

      And if each little site does its bit, we will prevail 😀

      Cheers 😀


      • Kate Rose says:

        So true, I am doing my best to publicise the various sites I visit. I also think its great the way you all cross reference – that is spreading the word.
        It is all starting to unravel. I cannot think Angus Houston is too happy with the buck going to stop with him in a week or so. General Angus Campbell, whatever his leanings, is like a rabbit trapped in a spotlight.
        I know first hand, that the naval personnel on at least one of the ships are not happy with the job they are being forced to do.
        Waiting for the photos to start appearing (everyone is now a camera) and the whistleblowers start blowing.


        • Truth Seeker says:

          Kate Rose, thanks for your comment 😎

          Ye, you have to feel for the ADF people that have to deal with this crazy mob 😦

          Keep spreading the word 😀

          Cheers 😀


        • Kate Rose says:

          OOOOps – not Angus Houston – the Head of Defence is General David Hurley.
          Interesting these top brass spokespersons are all Army – another reason for the Navy to be angry. Can’t wait for it to get worse (and then for the sake of Australia, better)


  9. bighead1883 says:

    It`s getting worse fast Truthy,Brandis and General Hurley have got together and cancelled workplace safety for the Navy.


  10. cornlegend says:

    Truthy, mate.
    What are we gonna do ?
    This lot for still nearly 3 years more.
    and you didn’t even get to mention the rorters, the schemers, the bloody crooks and thieves,the sexist grubs, the liars, racists and general all round bunch of arseholes like.
    Mathias Cormann
    Steven Ciobo
    Michaelia Cash
    Peter Dutton
    Joshua Frydenberg
    Sussan Ley
    Andrew Robb
    Arthur Sinodinos
    Eric Abetz
    George Brandis
    Warren Truss
    Teresa Gambaro
    Alex Hawke
    Don Randall
    Sharman Stone

    I reckon there’s still a poem or 10 left just on this lot of bottom feeders.


  11. allenmcmahon says:

    I am sure Abbott was misquoted and what he actually said was ‘a dolt is in charge’ or perhaps given his militaristic bent ‘Adolp is in charge.’


  12. diannaart says:

    Really enjoyed this latest “ode” Truthie, an Ode for the odoriferous, the Ruling Arses.

    Much needed after a week of extreme temperatures that according to the cunning stunt, Greg Hunt, is because Australia does have hot temperatures, just check Wiki.

    Cheers, mate.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Dianna, I’m glad you enjoyed it 😀

      It takes years of practice and drug abuse for someone to become that stupid, but it appears it happened naturally in Hunt’s case 😯

      Stay cool 😎

      Cheers ;grin:


      • diannaart says:

        Truthie, thank you for your kind words and to others – I did read them but have forgotten who and where.

        Spent most of yesterday sleeping – but a cool sleep as opposed to a heat exhaustion sleep. My little timber home cools down quickly (and yet is cozy in winter), will break my heart to sell – but needs must allows little choice.

        Hoping all who contribute to AIMN are well – whether we are in full agreement or not we need each other.



        • Truth Seeker says:

          Dianna, you are right, we do need each other, as we have a common enemy in Abbott’s LNP 👿

          And for all that love this country, that has to be the main focus 😀

          But disagreements among friends are perfectly acceptable as long as we are real adults about them, as opposed to the “Adults” that are running (Read ruining) the joint 😉

          Stay cool 😀

          Cheers 😀


  13. olddavey says:

    Great little ditty TS,
    calls for another red.


  14. Russ says:

    Another cracking effort Truthy, Love it,a question for you though.
    If this lot are the adults in charge, why are they acting like juvenile delinquents in every sphere they touch? Cheers mate.


  15. Caz2 says:

    Do you keep track on the number of posters? It would be nice to know how many people are turning to this site,the Guardian and Independent Australia to name a few, for an alternative news service.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Caz2, there are a lot of site stats available, some of which are available on the posts. The hit counter tells us that we have had nearly 101,000 hits, we have had around 10,500 comments and I know that the numbers here and on the AIMN are building al the time.

      All the sites have access to similar stats, and I’m sure that they would say the same, about the numbers building. 😀

      Cheers 😀


  16. Gilly says:

    Good one Truthie. Il like the lines
    “But he’s the raving dope …
    He hasn’t got a clue”.
    Too right mate, Adults know what they are doing, but this lot are spending like mad on reviews, enquiries etc and they having them done by a lot of “Yes” children. They don’t even have the wit to select reviewers adult enough to tell it to them straight..
