A Liberal Party Blueblood

A Liberal party blueblood so the political columnist say
But from his photos he looks quite healthy and physically okay
And he surely would die if his blood turned blue
Some cliches we use they are so far from true.

The Australian Liberal party they should change their name
For they put the lovely word of Liberal to shame
The word Liberal means generous and it does seem to me
That the Liberals and their supporters never use a dictionary.

For the Australian Liberal party are only generous to themselves and their own
And for helping the poor they will never be known
After their ten years in Government there is more poverty
Of the name they go by they make a mockery.

After their ten years in power many a new millionaire
And the poor keep getting poorer doesn't life seem unfair
And after their ten years in Government a greater social divide
Yet in their so called achievements they do take great pride.

A Liberal party blueblood he ought to be dead
Since blood is contaminated if it's not red
He is an upper class snob the columnist meant to say
And the poor growing sadder and poorer each day.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
