Joe’s Budget


Blustering and rhetoric
are unrestrained echoes
of blimps in simulated
Newspoll confidence

We must be seen as the
alternate Power and sound
to beat a common drum it
bleats if asked reflexively

Words disbursed by Shadow
Treasury from he who speaks
thereto, the Hon. Joe Hockey
Do you really care?

Disagrees on fiscal truth
and thus reality though free
of prejudice and offers up
a budget-empty bag

Honesty? He’s full
of hoot and hollering all
posed as plans without
a taint of policy
