Wasted Space

wasted space


Drivel’s too polite an affirmation,
yet to hear the new reborn-again dust
off their heinous faith and re-acclaim
old battle cries that ache of dried
and droughty yesteryears forsakes
what stands for commonsense

Eleven Years Is Much Too Bloody Long
their cant – forgetting foment in their
ranks, new-found amity of so-called
allies knives disguised in recent wary
backs as new-forged LNP ‘comes out’
to prance upon election’s centre stage

It breaks a drought of somnolence at
least, whines of disaffect from greedy
streets ask blatantly; come on mate,
the economy is stuffed okay, so show
your hand – what’$ in it then, in $$
terms, for a vote from me?

A hellish leap of faith when Federal
friends don’t run the Treasury – tho’
con and hype might whip ‘em through
their airy fiscal plans advise us to
awake and see we’re vacancies and
votes for LNP are wasted space

Lawrence Springborg leads LNP to
polls Saturday, 21 March 2009.
Antipathy towards Labor’s years
rather than realistic expectations
of a novice LNP in Government will
decide the elections outcome...
