What a bloody mess we’re in!

What a bloody mess we’re in!Open for business


This poem was written for no other reason, than it’s my birthday, so I can… And seeing as how we are now subjected to the long, winter break, and politically it’s that time when politicians play the junket game, heading off to the warmer climes of the northern hemisphere summer, or just playing hide and seek, with their electorates and constituents!   😯

So to fill the gap for those alleged reporters of news, who regularly neglect their duty to their readers/listeners/viewers, by beating up “nothing” stories, or ignoring the stories that don’t suit their agendas (Like Hockey telling the truth about “No budget emergency”, to the Kiwis… WTF?), I thought I would  go for something completely different, and try a “Look over here” moment   😯



What a bloody mess we’re in!


What a bloody mess we’re in

After ten months of these fools

Cos we listened to the right wing spin

From Murdoch’s bunch of tools

And now our country’s in the bin

Our democracy’s been hit

Cos of Abbott’s unoriginal sin

Of speaking nought but shit


He lied and cheated, that is clear

To gain the highest job

With Policies dribbling from his rear

He proved he’s just a knob

He talks of help, but he works on fear

As crap flows from his gob

He says he’ll save money, but he’s really dear

Just another trough snouting slob


He says he’s everybody’s friend

On that you can rely

But “the truth” is something that he’ll bend

Cos he’s partial to a lie

To hide the services that he’ll rend

He’ll claim a falling sky

And the multitudes that, to the dole, he’ll send

Would like to black his eye


He’s a right wing ideologue, that’s plain to see

And nothing could be truer,

Than he corrupted the leaning of the LNP

And moved them right, to the sewer

With support from that bastard Murdochracy

Whose mania has no cure

Who’s aligned them to the Tea party

His own wealth to secure


The treasurers judgement’s really poor

He’s tried to screw us all

So on his budget we’ve closed the door

Cos he’s really dropped the ball

While the economy goes right through the floor

His mob won’t stop the fall

Cos he’s sold his soul! He’s a corporate whore

Who’s full of lies and gall


For years he cried “Budget Emergency”

But to Kiwi’s he tells the truth

There is no damned emergency

And for that there’s lots of proof

So the lies from this bloody LNP

Were definitely uncouth

And exposed as pure ideology

By the rabid Hockey… goof


And Morrison of sovereign borders fame

Is such a raving knob

A psyche exam would end his game

Prove he’s not right for the job

And “megalomaniac”, is his name

Of that there’s little doubt

But megalomania, to the LNP’s shame,

Is what they’re all about


So while Peta Credlin runs the show

Anointing Hockey next in line

The Abbott basks in the medias glow

Thinking everything is fine

But even news poll seems to know

He’s running out of time

But Murdoch just wont let it go

Cos Abbott’s, Murdoch’s… slime


So for now we’re stuck with the LNP

And all their right wing spin,

And their broken promises, and bad policy

That’s dumped us in the bin

They’ve damaged our democracy

And our patience is wearing thin

And thanks to Abbott and his LNP

What a bloody mess we’re in?

    Lovely, Truthie. My bestest bit, although it was a close-run thing, is
    ‘With Policies dribbling from his rear.’ Sheer poetry Future generations will ‘get it’ when their professors explain in footnotes about the Suppository of Wisdom. Love it.

      Hey Kate 🙂 thanks for your comment 😎 “Dribbling from his rear” Ah, the joy of poetic licence 😀

      Glad you enjoyed it 🙂

      I hope all is going well for you down in Tassie? 🙂

      Cheers 🙂


      • kate ahearne says:

        All going lovely, thanks. I’ve been incommunicado for a couple of weeks, and not even listening to the news except by accident. Needing a mental holiday. Started spring clean yesterday – this;ll keep me busy for a couple more weeks. After which I’ll have no further excuses! Love your work.

    It surprises me that you haven’t been picked up for national syndication by Murdoch and Fairfax.

    It’s terriffic! It had me with a big sigh at the end, which quickly grew to a smirky, then a big, more hopeful smile!
    Happy Birthday Truthy. Party Hard :{)

    Hi TruthSeeker, Yes its me ,Hefina, we are certainly in a mess , you covered everything there, It’s been a while since i have been in touch with you here , but hope to come and visit you more often now , 🙂 I haven’t been on IA, either for a long time , The reason being i just can’t get on, i have tried and tried to sign in on my Password , and every time it rejects it so i gave up.
    Don’t think one moment i haven’t thought about you all i have.
    I have also been wondering what Corn Legend is up to , i do tick their boxes as a guest.
    David D, should have left it as it was , 🙂
    since i have been absent from here and IA, i do write my comments on the Guardian every day. and on Face book. that keeps me busy,
    $ weeks ago i had an op to my nose , and skin grafts for skin cancers , my face was a mess.
    I had to go around the place with muffs on my nose to hold the graft in place, i recovered well, but this tuesday i go again to the hospital to have another slice taken off my nose but no muffs this time,
    well TruthSeeker give my regards to all and to C/L . I am trying to get connected to IA one of these days , take care and keep writing those poems .
    Dont worry im still fighting Tony Abbott.

      Hey Hefina, it’s good to hear from you 🙂 and thanks for your feedback and the update 😎

      Mel has a similar issue with IA, and hasn’t commented there since DD changed the format 😦 although like you, she still reads the articles and up-votes comments of others as a guest 😀

      CL is on extended holidays somewhere in the northern hemisphere, while his new place up here in QLD is getting built. 😉

      I am also commenting at The Guardian, although I haven’t noticed you there, What name do you use?

      I’m sorry to hear about your skin cancer scares, and hope all goes well for tomorrow and with your recovery. 🙂

      We’ll be thinking of you, and sending lots of positive thoughts and vibes your way 🙂 , so please let us know how you get on.

      Cheers 😀
