Malcolm on the Margins

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

Dear Friend
I was in a Rut yesterday. It’s a constant battle
But look at me now

The Deer Hunter

Deer Mount

Am I Happy today? You Bet
As for tomorrow, No Idea

The Happiness Curve. We all have our Ups and Downs
It’s only Natural

Peaks and Valleys
That’s Life

Vatican Vote Yes

Smoke Signals in the Vatican
It’s the dawn of a new era

Pope Benedict vacates the top job 
Gay Marriage endorsed by the Church  

Smoke Signals

 

 

 

 

After days of deliberation. indecision and Grey Smoke
The Vatican announce to the world via a White Smoke signal
They’ve chosen the successor to Pope Benedict

But they drew the line at embracing Gay Marriage
That was a bridge too far

So God got involved and sent his message
The Rainbow said Yes to Marriage Equality

Rainbow Signal

Heavens above
What’s next
Female priests at the Tabernacle?

God Friday

Thank God it’s Friday. But it’s no ordinary Friday. It’s Good Friday.

In the Christian calendar, Good Friday marks the beginning of Easter as we remember the day Jesus, the son of God was murdered
Tortured and then crucified

That’s hardly a Good day in my book

But 3 days later he made a comeback
Now that was impressive

Jesus, the Son of God pulled a rabbit out of the hat by magically returning from the dead
And how do you reckon we celebrate this miraculous resurrection?
With Rabbits and Chocolate

And while I’m on the subject, how do you reckon Christians remember his birthday?
With an old fat bloke in a red suit flying through the night sky in an open sleigh powered by 12 time travelling reindeer

Any speculation of the Messiah returning some day ends here
He will not be making another comeback

Why would he after his last trip?
And he’s got other worlds to save
We had our chance

No matter what you believe
For the pious..thank God for the Holyday
For everyone else..thank Goodness for the Holiday

Either way, it’s a day off work
It’s All Good

Divine Intervention

Cancer touches many lives
The Catholic Church touch more

Location: East Melbourne, Australia

 

Despite being neighbours, these two institutions are worlds apart

We live in hope of a cure for cancer one day
Finding a cure for The Church will need a miracle
