On The 2013 Australian Federal Election

A Federal Election in September in Spring
The politicians on the hustings their own praises do sing
In their electioneering in every village and city and town
Politician laud their own parties and run their opponents down
It looks like Tony Abbott The Coalition leader Kevin Rudd the Labor leader as Australia's Prime Minister will replace
For a winner there has to be a loser in every race
An election fought on mean spirited policies of varying degrees
On the economy and climate change and who is toughest on refugees
At the expense of the stateless and homeless there are votes to be won
Politics can be quite a dirty business when all is said and done
Since their policies only favor the wealthy billionaire
Who will be Australia's next Government Labor or the Coalition why should i even care
Since with neither of their policies i do agree
My sympathies are with the poor refugee
