Here’s how it played out: what does it mean?
was it real ?
has it really been?
Kev said he wanted “Big Australia”
Put wool in ceilings and all that paraphernalia
The polls went down,
He wore a frown,
We survived the fallout from the USA property bubble
But it seemed our government was in trouble
To most of us it was as a bolt
The day that Gillard called a “Halt”!
A tap on the shoulder “It’s all over”
A ballot for leader? No. It would be a walkover.
A tight election barely suited
A minority government with help recruited
That's how a woman first came to power,
She had no reason to shrink and cower
But her reign was fraught;
with fashionistas she fought ,
Gillard was not the media’s darling,
Unmarried, atheistic but in reality charming
The press despised her
Were very unkind to her
every slip exposed,
she was goaded, teased
and soapie parodied
Every victory, achievement excluded,
Hard work covered, and buried,
By a press hell bent on virtual asphyxiation.
The deposed PM in retaliation,
treating parliament a bit like recreation
danced and twirled, a constant distraction
bathing in the press reaction
When the media king said “off with her head”
from that point on her leadership was dead,
Rudd who stuck just like molasses
was back to perform for the receptive masses,
The result of this absurd confection
Was for Kev to lead Labor to another election !
BUT Alas for Labor, Kev’s not Rupert’s favorite,
And Abbot’s recipe goes down like chocolate
He’s the new PM, the one we expected,
an ex- priest, a catholic he’s so well connected !
