681 : The Ideologue

Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were cruel, ghastly and unkempt.

The Ideologue.

He’s more callous 
Than cruel—
Ideological.
How much harm 
Can he really do
In just a 
Three year spell?
We’ll see
Just how dry 
Our life can be.
But who
Wants 
Such a ghastly nation?
Where, 
Unkempt and unemployed, 
You’ll subsidise 
The corporation.

      Those Howard years were a nightmare. And now they are back again...It's all down hill...Australians will be lucky to be able to feed themselves...Poverty and homelessness are on the rise and no one talks about it because we are supposed to be " The Lucky Country" ,our streets are paved with gold.
      Dame Edna was right . When asked what does it mean to be an Australian, she replied. " Being an Australian means you pay more for everything"

    In order to keep the house warm in winter, can you throw another idea log on the fire?

    Peace and joy!

  5. they'll be safe in their bunkers with protective mercs / armies, and on their massive floating ocean-liner-size yachts, from the rabble who squabble. or so they think. ~

  6. How we all must wish for a benevolent dictatorship. That might be better than a lot of lying toads who have no humanity.

  7. The ones you need to really look out for in the USA are the do-gooders with the audacity to think they know more about what's best for you than you do and believe me, it all starts at the top. Thanks for reminding me, I think.
