Dan Tehan Always Smiling - Poem by Francis Duggan

Government Minister Dan Tehan seems quite happy he has a toothy smile
But like most politicians he may not be free of guile
He has every reason for to smile for himself he is doing okay
With power at his disposal and a huge after tax pay
The federal Member for Wannon in Victoria's south west
Well up in the Liberal Party like many politicians good at feathering his own nest
The Liberal National Government he is a Minister in does not govern for those in poverty
To govern for the wealthy only is in their history
For a hero the poor people of Wannon should not look to Dan
But if you are a Wannon millionaire he surely is your man
That he is doing quite well for himself there can be little doubt
Dan Tehan always smiling he has much to smile about
A south west Victoria political power-broker and a financially well to do
Had i Dan Tehan's salary i would be smiling too.
