The Arts Party I Choose

THE ARTS PARTY I CHOOSE

By Eido Boru, a Brisbane Bard

 

I wanna create

A huge statue

Of our Ned

Mrs Kelly's son

A long time dead.

Can't be done

Don't have the bread

Wrote to the Feds

Their reply said

A huge statue

Of a dead Ned

You gotta be

Outa your tiny head.

Just apply for

Newstart instead.

HMM! BUT LET'S SEE

Perhaps maybe

You could do this

My creative and

Hirsute Artist

Build a statue

Of a huge submarine

This is an idea

On which we're keen

Using expensive imported

Marble of brilliant white

(Shines in the sunlight)

Want you to carve

An enormous U-boat

The bigger the better

It don't have to float

We'll moor it in

The centre of Adelaide

So the voters

Can say prayers

Before the annual

Anzac Day parades.

You gotta complete

This gigantic

Maritime erection

Before the next

Federal Election.

We gotta prevent

Any major loss

(Particularly for us)

To our quota

Of rapidly dwindling

Swinging voters

SO YOUR NED

Has done his dash

For a marble U-boat

There's lotsa cash.

I told the Feds

To give up hope

It's gotta be Ned

Not Up Periscope

I got one vote

Which I will use

To create a Ned

THE ARTS PARTY I CHOOSE.
