If You Vote 4 Arts

IF YOU VOTE 4 ARTS

by Eido Boru, a Brisbane Bard

 

No good at sport

Don't own a boat

Long distance running

An exhausting joke.

But you gotta camera

Take some spectacular shots

Enter a competition

Now you're hot to trot.

 

Wanna get married

To the same sex

Our new gender law

When passed by the Senate

Is guaranteed to ensure

There'll be no penance

Your only problem

Will be the ceremonial text.

 

Sitting in the dark

Slurping a smoothie

Being totally enthralled

Watching an Aussie movie

Our actors, writers, musos

Stunts and tech teams

Created what you are

Seeing on the big screen.

Now the future ain't bleak

Cos an Arts Party will fund

Mr Mad Max meets Mr Wolf Creek

Horrendous heads, big bang guns

 

Gonna encourage kids

To enjoy poetry

They'll still be allowed

To climb up trees

And to play football

In the mud and dirt

Go to the local Scout's Hall

For a Rap concert.

 

After doing the shopping

Mowing the damn lawn

And washing the car

Don't be forlorn

Come to the opera

At a nearby park

This is what's on offer

IF YOU VOTE 4 ARTS.
