Said the Abbott to the Bishop… Team Australia!

Said the Abbott to the Bishop… Team Australia!

Team Australia  O_o

Team Australia    O_o

And as we dig a bigger and bigger hole for ourselves, under the guise of being good global citizens   😯   , there is little to recommend this current course of action, other than the rhetoric of Abbott’s “Team Australia” slogan; which fits in well with the policy, decency, honesty and substance free zone, we laughingly call the Australian Parliament!   😯

So with that in mind, I thought “Team Australia” needed some perspective   😉  via the “Said the Abbott to the Bishop…” treatment   😉


So here it is   😀

Said the Abbott to the Bishop, Team Australia


Said the Abbott to the Bishop

Team Australia’s, such good fun

I think I’ll be a captain coach

Australia’s number one

And everyone is welcome

To join with the rabid right

Muslim, Christian, black or tan

We’ll make them feel all white


We’ll mobilise the people

And we’ll do what must be done

To hang onto our power base

So with a this war we’ll run

But don’t say I said it’s a war

Humanitarian’s what we’ll call it

Cos it sounds much more impressive

And it fits with all our bull shit


Said the Abbott to Joe Hockey

Team Australia’s quite a lark

Cos to solve our youth unemployment woes

We’ll just send them to Iraq

So let’s hope that bloody ISIL mob

Maintain their insurrection

For at least another two years

To get us through the next election


But linking our bad budget measures

Is walking on the edge

Cos by praising Shorten publicly

I’m building a political wedge

His rank and file don’t like him

Think he’s not up for the fight

And me calling him a great patriot

Moves him further to the right


So keep doing what you’re doing

For to get your budget sold

But remember, failing the LNP

Will see you left out in the cold

Cos in the Libs, hard work and loyalty

Aren’t worth a single Kipper, when you

do the wrong thing by the party…

Just ask Peter Slipper


Said the Abbott to Scott Morrison

Team Australia’s such a hoot

We can claim “national security”

For giving rights and freedoms, the boot

And locking up dissenters

And sending the agencies in

To show the need for what we’ve done

And feed our right wing spin


And you’ve done a really splendid job

Displaying lots of guts

To stand your ground, while all around you

Think you’re really nuts

But never fear, you fit in here

Of that there’s little doubt

But if the voters learn the truth

They’ll kick our arses out


And that’s why “Team Australia” is

Really our best bet

Cos we’ll play the patriotic card

For all that we can get

With National Security

The catch cry of the day

To help us sell our narrative

Cos that’s the Liberal way


Said the Abbott to the people

Team Australia’s where you belong

So get out all your Aussie flags

And join the happy throng

We’ll stand together side by side

To beat this terror threat

And with me as captain, and PM

You just ain’t seen nothing yet


Said smart Aussies to the Abbott

All your policies are bad

And we don’t support your rhetoric

We think you’re raving mad

And the truth is Team Australia

Is just a bloody croc

And your not a captain or PM’s arse

You’re just a lying… little… COCK



He's not a captain, he's a Major… disaster!

He’s not a captain, he’s a Major… disaster!

    Hi Truthy,
    AlQueda’s expanding into the Indian muslim population. This thing could go on for years. Safest to join B company. B here when they go and B here when they get back.
    You know , especially in this day and age, when heights talk about cosy togetherness and team Australia’s that it’s all hollow platitudes. Politics with corporate rule and so called free markets have been killing off cozy togetherness and team Australia for some years now, and with intent.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Morning Jim 🙂 and thanks for your comment 😎

      Yes mate, I agree 😯

      And you are right about team Australia, which is nothing more than a corporate tag to play on peoples sense of patriotism… To suck people in to the LNP agenda! 👿

      Cheers mate 🙂

    And thatz hust with eachother as Shorty`s just off in LaLaLand 😡
    You`ve certainly got Abbott pegged cause the chip on his shoulder is bigger thean his wooden head 😯

    Another classic ”’ Said The Abbott”’ poem,well done,and button the front of your shirt laddy,youv’e already being kicked off ” Team Australia”’ and if you write another one of those bloody poems against Tony he will come screaming through your front door and shirt front you,and he’s got snake eyes for backup so just watch it mate or you will be gone for all money.


  5. consider says:

    Truthy, at least Abbott is well-balanced, he has a chip on both shoulders.
    Wouldn`t it be good to see Abbott and Putin going at in one of those cages where Abbott couldn`t run away. I`m pretty sure the other bloke wouldn`t be trying to run away.
    Cheers mate.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Hey Consider 🙂 Thanks for your comment 😎

      yes mate, but the way he rocks when he walks, you’d think his chips must be firmly attached 😯

      Like you, I’d pay money to see that fight, although I doubt it would go for more than a few seconds 😉

      Cheers mate 🙂

    “Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies, The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” – C.S. Lewis, _God in the Dock_
