The Australian Democracy?

The Australian Democracy?Democracy1 1

This poem was written as a response to the blatant and ongoing disregard for our  democracy, by the evil Murdoch, and the mendacious, and some would say corrupt, LNP.   😯

They certainly corrupted our democracy with their lies spin, and propaganda campaign, restricting the information that the citizenry  received, to only their side of the debate, consequently denying the voters the ability to make an informed choice.

And as far as I’m concerned, that makes this rabble they call a government, completely illegitimate!   😛

The Australian Democracy.


Australian Democracy.


Australian democracy

Is just a bloody joke

It’s been terribly subverted, by

That bloody Murdoch bloke

He left this great Australia

For that corporate US joint

Yet he thinks he has the right to dictate

Who we should appoint.


So he chose for us the Abbott man,

And started on the sell

To convince us that we should employ

The government from hell

And not for any altruistic

Care for this great nation

But because we allow such moguls

To extend beyond their station


So he sauntered in to take control

And exercise his power

By directing his man Tony,

From the Murdoch ivory tower

He’s quite the megalomaniac,

A dictator through and through

And he’ll happily pocket billions

While he dumps us in the poo


And the rise of right wing nut-jobs,

To the heads of government

Is a sad indictment on a country

Who’s leaders are low rent

Like Napthine in Victoria

Who’s trying to survive

By bailing out the Abbott

While his state takes a nose dive


Barry OFarrell in NSW

Is another right wing Knob

Who lied, and broke his promises,

Once he had got the job

There’s Newman here in QLD,

Who makes out that he’s just great

By turning our democracy,

Into a fascist state


His anti-association laws are

Nothing short of sick

And though he acts like a dictator

He’s just a rabid little dick

And with elections in the offing

For the South Australian state

As well as little Tassie,

Which might face a Liberal fate


Of selling off the family farm

And mass privatisation

Through lies and spin and propaganda

They’ll sell the bloody nation

Of massive cuts to services,

And job losses as well

As they introduce their version of

The Abbott’s right wing hell


And with Murdoch right behind them,

They’re empowered to be bad

With their economic trickle down

A system that’s just mad

While they claim that our democracy

Is strong and so robust

The truth is that these idiots

Are grinding it to dust


So let’s lift our voices long and loud

To tear the Murdoch down

And we really need to do the same

To Abbott… Murdoch’s clown

Then we can start reclaiming

Our once proud identity

And reintroduce Australia

To its lost democracy

    YUP that`s that mob on TV I see
    Those one`s who care not for you or me
    Yet all the TV commentators cheer them and gleefully say
    Everything is Labor`s fault a we`re in a budget emergency by the way
    We`ll all help Tony Abbott and parrot what he has to say
    Because we don`t care for our country we only want our pay.
    Truthy you have done so well
    In creating a vision of Abbott`s corporate hell
    But have you thought going to the top and all the way?
    In mailing this to Archbishop Big George Pell to see what he has to say?
    Maybe he could intervene and ask the Murdoch to repent and come clean
    He could now say Rupert fear God you do?
    Then the Murdoch would answer NO but fear me I say to you
    Because all your dirty little secrets I have hacked
    So Australia is totally mine with this government that I backed.

    Well that is a great poem truthie and we may have to start replying in verse like bighead.
    I had to laugh that Channel 7 got raided and the manager complained to his friend Turnbull. These politicians have friends at 7 and that is why their news is biased and reports are one sided.
    If you haven’t seen this three minute video of a dog with table manners you must watch.

    Hey, Truthie! How do you do it? Splendid as always. Thanks. Not sure whether to giggle or snivel.


  4. brickbob says:

    Hi Truthie and thanks for another great muse, So lets lift our voices long and loud
    To tear the Murdoch down. Great stuff, Cheers.

      Brickbob, thanks, for your comment 😎 and feedback 😀

      Yes mate, we need to reclaim our democracy, and really stick it to Murdoch and his clowns 😀

      Cheers 😀

    Democracy LNP Democracy
    Government of the people submission of the people
    by the people by the liars
    for the people for those who can pay


  6. cornlegend says:

    That pic you used.
    Clowns everywhere will be hunting you down,
    probably feeling a little guilt by association


  7. frontad84 says:

    Believe me we should feel afraid
    Of the fuck ups Abbott has made
    If we don’t make him quit
    He’ll bury us in shit
    With his evil P.M. masquerade


  8. frontad84 says:

    Each time I see the stupid PM
    I can’t help but wonder just when
    And where we went wrong
    In electing this nong
    And his band of misogynist men.

    Each time I see Abbott I curse
    And start in to writing crude verse
    For can’t help being rude
    About that rotten dude
    And his zoo who daily get worse.


  9. bilko says:

    Another fine piece of prose, what are your thoughts on one on our very own Sovereign Borders muppet on the lines of “a model major general” aka G&S. And Teflon would be no better than our tones both spineless.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Hey Bilko, thanks for that 😀

      mate I used to enjoy a bit of G & S when I was a kid… good fun 😀
      And they would have to take at least some credit for my love of verse 😯

      It would probably work well, but IMHO it would be a shame to defile such a classic, with the likes of Abbott 😉

      Cheers 😀

    Truthy I posted these thoughts on I.A. today, thought I`d post it here as well.

    I’ll defy anyone who is a member/supporter of any political party to say they agree 100% with EVERYTHING that party stands for. Therefore it is natural, that in the main, for better or for worse, the party of their choice will not be perfect.

    Having said that, in the current climate re asylum seekers, one must ask oneself does my party support the PNG Solution. In this case BOTH major parties do. So the next question is, do I support how the refugees are being treated? If the answer is NO, it is obvious that those with the power to change it, in this case the government, are the ones to direct ones disgust at their inactions and apparent support of what is happening to the refugees.

    I don’t see the point in attacking the party one supports who in this case are in opposition and can only make noises. By all means, rip into your party for their perceived inactions in not being proactive enough by highlighting the discrepancies of the other side. But don’t throw the baby out with the bath water. I’m guilty of attacking the party I support re it’s factions and the leader it currently has, but to wipe them and vote for the other lot I’d never do. What Abbott and his mob stand for doesn’t come remotely close to what I believe is right for this country first of all, and right for me second.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Consider, thanks for sharing your thoughts here as well 😎 and well said. 😀

      Rightly or wrongly we have a two party system, and although the party might need fixing, and brought kicking and screaming back to its core values, that’s what needs to be done for the sake of the country. 😯

      Cheers 😀
