Politics in Australia. There’s a Faction too much Fiction
What do our Politicians stand for these days and where do they sit on the political spectrum. Left, Right or somewhere in the Middle?
Don’t bother asking the Politicians. You gotta work it out yourself.
Take Malcolm Turnbull for example
I’ve been trying align his image to one side of the page
Tried to align it to the Left. That came up Short
Tried to align Malcolm in the Middle. Still too Short And that was an American Sitcom. Made no sense. So that was out
Tried to align it to the Right. That was Perfect
That was Tight. A great Fit Problem was he wanted it All
He wanted it All Right and Right now
Leaving no Space for others
I couldn’t Justify it So I aligned his image to None
Not content playing a role in the peloton Malcolm wanted to play his own game And in 2015, he made his move
The mad monk, Tony Abbott was sent peddling into the sunset
Australia now had a new Prime Minister
And in 2016 after a Federal election win
By the narrowest of Margins
Malcolm managed to form a Minority government
Yet it wasn’t long before Malcolm was in a Muddle
Lines would be drawn and crossed And they would continue to be drawn. And again they’d be crossed The consequences of running the country on the edge of his Seat in a Divided House
Malcolm would eventually become a Footnote
But the real question lies in the big picture
As a nation, where’s Australia Heading?
To the Margins… At least we’re all on the same Page
The International Space Station (ISS) has it’s own expresso machine. NASA have dubbed it, the ISSpresso
and then planetBudge gets creative suggesting Ground control back on Earth had forgotten to send coffee beans up with the expresso machine.
Here’s the conversation between the Space Station (NASAcafe) and Ground Control (NesCafe)
Begin: Sipping Expresso in Outer Space…but they forgot one thing
NASAcafe: Where are the Coffee Beans?
NesCafe: Here at Ground Control
NASAcafe: No good to us down there. Get Beans here ASAP
NASAcafe: Waddaya mean how..How Long before you get em up here?
NesCafe: How Long is in Vietnam
NASAcafe: Don’t get cute with me Ground control. Just Bean them up
NesCafe: Like a giant Coffee Beanstalk?
NASAcafe: No not a Beanstalk…For fucks sake you little stick fiddler, get my beans teleported up here. We need our caffeine
NesCafe: Just to clarify, did you mean Beam instead of Bean?
NASAcafe: YES I MEAN BEAM NOT BEAN.. Now just Beam them up. This instant
NesCafe: On its way
NASAcafe: Received 1 bottle of Jim Beam. Thanks. Fuck the Expresso
