Tony the Plumber.

Tony the Plumber.

Tony The Plumber!"

Tony The Plumber!”

A couple of days ago, I referred to Abbott as “Tony the Plumber”, and I thought that I should  follow that comment up with an explanation, for any that didn’t get my drift   😯    and a poem seemed like the obvious option.

So here it is:

Tony the plumber


Tony the Plumber was flushed with success

From his cheating, to score the top job

With his work crew all shonky

Being middle aged and honky

And owned by a mendacious knob


He’s called “Uncle Rupert”, a media mogul

Who lives in a land far away

And he owns many arses

In the faux ruling classes

Cos that’s just his mendacious way


He cheats and he steals and he does dodgy deals

Cos power’s the old mans main game

And he’ll do what it takes

To install his “owned”  flakes

So that they can all carry his blame


And Tony the plumber was always a bummer

Punching walls, he’s a thug and a bully

They say a Rhodes scholar

But he worships the dollar

With a brain that’s decidedly woolly


He’s a CC denier, and pathological liar

And the worst of a very bad lot

And they say that they care

And they’ll be more than fair

But on both counts they’re bloody well NOT


And Him and Joe Hockey are feeling quite cocky

About the pain they’ll inflict with their budget

Though the cross benches say

That they’ll pass it… No way

They still hope, like their figures… they’ll fudge it!


And though he should be sent packing, cos he’s seriously lacking

There’s nobody else to take charge

Cos Malcolm’s too left

And of cred, he’s bereft

With his lies and hypocrisy, writ large


Then there’s Sloppy Joe, whose left nowhere to go

Cos his fudge-it is fair on the nose

With his lies getting bigger

Than the Liberals can figure

With Sloppy Joe, anything goes


Some mention Chris Pyne, the clown prince of whine

As the Abbott’s most likely successor   😯

Education’s his game

But the man’s quite insane

And he’s certainly no bloody professor!


And his deputy Jules is another of Rupes fools

But for leader she’ll not get whirl

Cos she’s nasty and mean

And morally obscene

And it’s rumoured she might be a “GIRL”


So with Abbott we’re stuck as his mob runs amok

And we have to find some way to foil it

Cos with royal regalia

He’ll destroy our Australia

And install… An American… Toilet.

    I wouldn’t hire this plumber
    He wouldn’t fix the pipes
    He would just take the lot
    Dig it up sell it off
    Like the rest of Aussie
    Then he would beat my kids up
    Kick the dog, and shoot the cat
    On his way out the yard
    Noooo thanks,
    I will stick with my broken pipes

    Another cracker Truthmeister.
    I don’t think of him as a plumber so much, as a shithouse mechanic or Turd burglar. Cheers buddy

    Well put Truthy.
    Same old farce in this country, some things never change. I thought we were past the 50/60’s.
    Demanding attention while applying true intention and greed , the mother of invention.
    They are dinosaurs who are giving us all the same fate aside from their comfort and wealth. Their glory is to serve their own ” peers “above and around and perport that game as if they have charge, great knowledge and monkeys above others . There is no brilliance here. Parasites bluffing their way through and boundaried by small mind and typecasting and they’d love to kill anything or anyone in their way.
    Instead of shaping the future with what we have , their initiative and small circles of their magnetic attraction leaves them and us as beggars of initiative. Everythings back to the future after the fact. They want more boom and demand the majority and lower tread the mill faster for more. The boom was’nt to build on spread the joy and crop and flower it for the future , it was to glutton on and take and self indulge in a pathetic fest. .
    I think it is permanently 1962 upstairs. But it dresses like a whore for any occaision.

      Jim, thanks for your comment 😎

      Yes mate, they’ve placed us on a slippery slope back to serfdom 👿 and their only regard is for themselves and their rich mates. 😡

      Cheers mate 😀

    Take any 3 year period of Parliament and Ruperts telling and selling, (and notice year rhymes with tear ) , and run it over the populace again overdubbed with the truth , intention and hindsight and matters that came to surface and you will have direction and a future . Show the public the tricks and truths of why.


  5. Fed up says:

    TT, our Tony never yearned a plumber to be. His eyes were diverted elsewhere. Yes, what obsessed Tony, was that t great big ball on a chain. Oh what havoc could I wreck, if I grew up to swing that ball.

    Yes, he did grow up. He did get biggest ball of all. . .One to wreck all in this fair land. Tody is the ship building industry
    Yes, Tony has met the Queen. Maybe he needs to past her, his new knights and dames. Cannot see any other reason, why our Tony has left our shores at this me.


  6. Fed up says:

    Meeting with business, while he send another industry to he wall. It appears no tenders from Australia for those ships is alloed. No one here are up to the standard illustrious defence minster expects.

      Malcolm lost his good humour
      About deposing Tony the tumour
      In denial hit the roof
      But there’s always a grain of truth
      In every juicy rumour.


      • Truth Seeker says:

        Frontad84, thanks for that mate 😎 Love your work 😀

        Cheers 😆


      • driftwood12 says:

        They are tag teaming. Setting Malcolm up for public approval. World championship wrestling. Bolt, Jones, great backdrops for approval under current climate. Confidence trick testing the waters , usual distraction politics. Still the same one snake running the show from behind. Malcolm holds John Howards comforting and confidence scamming abilities. Hypnotize a sheep. Both gods in New Zealand. Abbotts too much silence of the lambs come Goofy sort of thing. But it’s paid well for him though the sheep arent going through the gate. Climbing the trees with legs crossed.
        Much work is going on in background.
        There is one aim. Institution markets, corporate rule. Unless housing is addressed, another hit is coming to fulfull further dreams in minor percentage from prior boom overindulgence.


  7. Fed up says:

    Seems meeting the Queen and seeing the sights of Paris are his highest priority at this time.

    Not his toxic budget.


  8. Fed up says:

    He does look lonely, does he not, with those scenes of him arriving. Has anyone seen his agenda for this trip, before he left.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Fed up, the only part of his agenda that I’d be interested in, is the part where he disappears into a big hole, never to be seen or heard from again! 😯

      But sadly, his agenda will be mainly self serving, and include no big holes for him to fall into 😡

      Cheers 😀


  9. consider says:

    As a plumber Truthy, he would be the type you see the reporters chasing down the street on current affair programmes


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Consider, thanks for your comment 😎

      Mate sorry it took me a while to reply, but I was so stuffed last night, when I finally got back to the computer, that I only wrote one reply, and then went to bed 😯

      Will be heading to Brissy a bit later when my parents get here, but should be back sometime this afternoon. 😉

      Cheers mate 😀


  10. kate ahearne says:

    Lovely, Truthie. You’ve plumbed the depths of that noisome crew. Thanks as always for your wonderful work.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Hi Kate, 😀 and thanks for your comment and kinds words 😎

      It was one of Those days, yesterday, and I apologise for my late reply 😦

      They are pretty noisome aren’t they! :mrgreen:

      Cheers 😀


  11. frontad84 says:

    Truthy, Thank you, but let me say I have always admired your work which always without fail hits the nail on the head at every occasion, with “Tony the plumber” being just one more of your masterpieces to add to the collection. Regards


  12. frontad84 says:

    Those who think they have class
    And support the Liberal farce
    Are all the rich pricks
    Who play with their dicks
    And whose heads are stuck right up their arse

    The lying Libs are all one of a kind
    With a Leader right out of his mind
    This PM from Hell
    Has trained them so well
    They must all think we are blind

    The Libs are not looking too good
    But of course there’s no reason they should
    While they’ve Morrison the swine
    And that simpering Pyne
    And to top it all led by a hood.

    Like a good wine you certainly improve with age Truthy 🙂 .
    Excellently done with just the correct amount disgust.
    Your aplomb 😛 in handling the delicate budget expos`e shows the true worth of knowing one`s subject matter first hand 🙄 .
    The whole poem has the Glenn 22 effect as it explains all the LNP crap without the stench 😀 .


  18. bighead1883 says:

    It was so good that Glen gave you 2 extra Truthy 🙂
