Said the Abbott to the treasurer.

Said the Abbott to the treasurer.Dunce2

As this pathetic excuse for a government approaches it’s first budget, and with the lies  flying thick and fast from the Abbott and his cronies, I thought it was time for another poem.   😯

imagesAnd after much consideration, I decided to make it  another in the “Said the Abbott…” series, and this is it.   😀


Said the Abbott to the treasurer.


Said the Abbott to the treasurer

There’s a snow job still to do

To address the large imbalance

Between the poor and the richest few

We need to make adjustments

To reflect our own agendas

And to hide the fact that the LNP

Are the billionaires defenders


The wealthy need the lions share

Of tax breaks and supports

To help them build the economy

By Mogul, welfare rorts

But the problem is, those pensioners

Who want more than their share

How dare they think that they deserve

A system that is fair?


I mean, they’ve lived a bloody lifetime

And most have naught to show

But they think that just because they’re old

The welfare funds should flow

Now with these, we must tread carefully

To protect our supporter bases

So we’ll do them over gently

While we put on friendly faces


But those disability pensioners

Are something else again

Cos they’re just a bunch of bludgers

Who can’t work… cos they’re in pain?

Amputees and the terminally ill

Should shut their whingeing gobs

Then take a bloody Aspro

And get back to their jobs


And then there’s those that claim the right

To see a doctor for free

Well that’s not gonna happen here,

With the glorious LNP

User pays, is our belief

And if they think that’s tough

Well go and whinge to someone else

Cos we don’t give a stuff


All Medicare locals will be gone

While renewables take a hit

With cuts to public services turning

Labors legacy to shit

And the assets sell off, was a coup

For all our wealthy mates

As you shifted blame from the government

To the stupid, bloody states


And bloody Clive has said that he

Will stop us in our tracks

He’ll even reconsider keeping

That bloody carbon tax

So we have to hit them hard and fast

And give ourselves a pass

To do whatever else it takes

To sell Australia’s arse


If we can get the budget through

Then the country’s been done over

While the rightful rulers of the land

Will find themselves in clover

So hold your nerve and stay your course

Cos the media, we’ll keep hogging

And the poor, and the most vulnerable

Will cop… a right royal… flogging


Old Lady2

    Morning,Truthie. Lovely job again, as usual. And I notice this morning that we’re spending billions on some fancy new jets – those will be the billions we saved by hitting the most vulnerable of our citizens. Deary me.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Morning Kate 🙂 I hope all is well with you back home? 😉

      Thanks for your comment an kind words 😎

      Yes, the frustrating thing for me is that the initial order was from Howard, against the best advice at the time, and now that those warning have been well and truly justified, Abbott picks up where Howard left off, and added more orders on top, when the smart money would be looking elsewhere. 😯

      So they can’t waste money on such frivolous things as health, education and welfare, but they can throw it away on a flock of flying lemons 😯 Good one… NOT!

      Cheers 😀

    Another top rhyme Truthie.

    Kate, I wonder where the ‘clear and present danger’ is that we so desperately need to spend on war machines and cut back on aid for the most vulnerable?


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Dianna, thanks for that 🙂

      I hope the weather is treating you well, and you’re feeling stronger now? 🙂

      I think there is more to this purchase than meets the eye, as all the evidence pointed to it being a bad idea, when Howard first announced it, but he went ahead regardless, and now, despite the software issues, and the expected ongoing maintenance problems and expected cost blowouts , Abbott’s signed up for more 😯

      I’m hoping someone will follow the money trail, cos I’m sure that will lead somewhere interesting????? 😉

      Cheers 😀

    Truthy, you hit the mark again. What have we done to deserve this lot ?.
    I think that that picture at the end of your poem should be used constantly up until the next election to highlight the effect this “Government’ is having not only the elderly and the
    most vulnerable, but on the nation generally.
    Keep up the good work mate.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Consider, thanks mate for your comment, kind remarks and support. 😎

      Yes, it’s getting easier and easier to see what a warped bunch of priorities this warped bunch of RWNJ’s has. 😯

      I never thought I would say this, but I’m actually starting to warm to Clive Palmer, like you do to the crazy, distant uncle who turns up at family gatherings and upsets the apple cart… just because he doesn’t give a rats what others think, , and because he can 😀

      Interesting times?????? 😉

      Cheers 😀


      • consider says:

        Truthy, you are right about Palmer upsetting the Tories apple cart, but I`m afraid I could never warm to what his real agenda is, that is “how much is in it for me, and how long will it take me to get it before those poor bastards wake up to me and toss me out”.


        • Truth Seeker says:

          Mate, like you, I could never warm to his agenda, but I am warming to his attitude towards the LNP 😀

          I love the smell of duelling Tory’s in the morning 😉

          Cheers 😀


  4. brickbob says:

    Hi Truthie and thanks for another great poem,you have really nailed these bastards to the mast and all we have to do now is hang em from the yard arm. ps” Thanks for your support on my behalf,i really appreciate it. Cheers.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Brickbob, thanks for your comment and feedback 😎

      Mate, no thanks necessary, as I’m happy to help where I can 🙂 I wouldn’t have got started without the help and encouragement of Miglo (Michael Taylor), from Café Whispers. 😉

      And besides mate we’re all on the same side, with a common goal 😯

      Keep up the good work 😎

      Cheers 😀

    Great lyrics, and excellent rhythm! You have done well!
    Regards the jet purchase, there was a good interview on tonights’ PM ABC radia program. The last guy interviewed gave a lengthy explination as to why they are a waste of money.
    To put it briefly the Joint Strike Fighter plane is only properly effective when used with the F22 Raptor.
    Problem is Australia has no F22 Raptor’s and they are no longer made. The US has a limited number for themselves only.
    I can only hope that Palmer will cause a blocking of supply because Labor won’t.
    Then someone can reverse all the idiodic decisions Tony and his Cronies have made.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Orangefox, thanks for that 😎

      Yes, there were big clouds hanging over them when Howard signed up, and many said at the time, that they were not the best option (me included) 😯

      I get the distinct impression that there has been a deal done somewhere that’s tied us to this plane irrespective of the cost and well documented software and other problems? 😉

      If Palmer can be believed, he will be a right royal pain in the arse for Abbott 😀 and it couldn’t happen to a more deserving dickhead 😉

      Reversing the damage done will be a big job, and bigger, the longer this bunch of RWNJ’s are in control 👿 if it can be called “Control” 🙄

      Cheers 😀

    OF, you’re correct regarding the fact that the aircraft was originally designed to be flown with the F22.

    I’ve just posted at IA.
    “4 Corners did a big expose on them early last year.
    They’re referred to as generation 5 aircraft. The person that 4 Corners spoke to last year, was on ABC 24 yesterday morning. He was critical of the fact that the plane does not possess comparable flat line speed, climb rate, turn rate, maximum operational ceiling, fuel capacity or armaments load capacity when compared with other generation 5 aircraft, currently in production.

    A spokesperson on the ABC yesterday morning explained that none of those things mattered because airwarfare in the future would be fought “beyond the horizon”. He added that the range shortcomings didn’t affect the capacity of the aircraft to provide air defence over central Australia. I’m not sure what’s new about that given that Krupps provided the German ‘heavy fleet’ with over the horizon naval guns 70 years ago.

    Our prime monster was interviewed after the announcement and was asked by a journo if there were better specified aircraft and dopey responded with, ” Err, aaah, mmmmm, well, there probably are, but they’re probably from countries that wouldn’t sell to us”.

    Geez, I bit the pilots are thrilled to hear that degree of confidence.”

    Spot on Truthie, I watched some of Hockey’s extended spin. No substance, no truth no qualification just half an hour of TV time the same time as they announce a $12 billion insurance policy (JSF purchase) to cover their incompetent diplomatic skills.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Morning Gilly 🙂 , and thanks for you comment and feedback 😎

      Yes, I made an executive decision to preserve the working order of the TV, by watching something else… anything else! 😉

      Isn’t it funny that everything that Abbott accused the previous government of, has become a reality under him? 😉 And then some… Mmmmmm?????

      Cheers 😀
