The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Adios prime minister

Adios prime minister


James Bredin

Remember the red book and the GST lies you denied?
Shrugged your socialist shoulders, sighed, beguiled and again you lied,
Millions to Shawinigan friends and denied conflict of concern,
Appointees Howard and the Mounty backed you up we were to learn.

And in 2000 you went and called a sudden snap election,
To hide Auditor’s report ‘bout missing money detection,
Directed millions to your vote-block crowd down on the east coast,
And your socialist system worked ‘cause you came up with the most.

You can do this of course because we have no set election dates,
Not allowed referendums, recall or Supreme Court debates,
No questions ‘bout their secret interests and we’re not allowed to doubt,
Their same-sex marriage decision that showed what they’re all about.

While recently in Africa did you meet to your friend Mugabe?
That communist intent on starving only half of Zimbabwe?
You should arrange to go and live there ‘cause you like it so much,
A position at the UN with Stephen Lewis and such.
