602 : Our Rupert

Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were Anticipate, Fearless and Serene.

Inspired by Rallentanda, with an election eight days away
And the media attack dogs running with full blood-lust,
I present:

Our Rupert.

The boy from Oz is most serene,
It’s going to his plan.
Anticipating we will consent 
To anoint his chosen man.

Headlines define the battle lines—
Dissent is on page twelve.
Our fearless Rupert intervenes
As we cannot trust ourselves.

  1. Well SOMEbody has to intervene, don't you think? After all, why trust the voters? ;)

  2. He'll have to fight off George Pell for ultimate control.

  3. I, for one, welcome our trans-national, megacorporate, neo-feudal overlords.


  4. I don't need help in making up my mind. I'm old enough and ugly enough to know my own mind...I don't need anyone's help. So Mickey and all his mates can butt out! Bring back "Dexter" soon - that's all I ask! ;)

  5. What a kind, generous and altruistic soul our Rupert is. Always looking out for other people...

  6. Curiously I have had 5 calls so far asking me my opinion on this election. You will be pleased to know that the opinions of an ex-pat Aussie now US citizen were furthest from my mind when giving my answers.

  7. He needs a wife no 4 to take his mind off politics.The devil makes work for idle hands!

  8. Considering he gave up his Australian citizenship to become American I think he gave up the right to have an opinion, and he should keep his nose out!
    Can't stand the man. His mother, however, is a wonderful woman.


You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
