Poem a Day 2013 #14: Let’s Do Nothin’

Poem number 14. How Abbott will coast into office.

Let’s do nothin’

 

As glaciers melt

and sea level rises

let’s not worry

ignore the crisis.

Let’s do nothin’.

 

As junk food giants

fill our children with crap

let’s not worry

stand back and clap.

Let’s do fuck all.

 

As our newspapers lie

distort and deceive

let’s not worry

just read and believe.

Let’s do zilch.

 

As our politicians

curse and scream

let’s not worry

just watch TV.

Let’s do bugger all.

 

If our forces fight

someone else’s war

let’s not worry

that’s what they’re for.

Just keep your mouth shut.

 

When desperate people

seek our protection

let’s lock them up

and drive them demented.

Then turn a blind eye.
