Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were: fraught, honourable, nocturnal.
After a few late night sitting in the parliament,
the Australian Government took the foolish,
but ideologically driven, step of
removing the price on carbon pollution.
Sadly, too many of them think God will save them.
The honourable crew decided,
In a manner rather fitting,
To return us to a darkened state
With a late night sitting.
The science was roundly derided,
The lies were unremitting,
The guillotine gagged debate,
The party whips were spitting.
And so they sat, this gallant bunch,
Lawyers, doctors, bankers,
And took a fraught and backward pace,
To ignore the climate canker.
Once we come to the final crunch,
The Eden for which they hanker,
Will be a most unpleasant place—
The bunch of bloody wankers.
