On The Resignation Of Barry O' Farrell - Poem by Francis Duggan

The Premier of New South Wales Barry O' Farrell his portfolio has resigned
Unwittingly according to himself to a little scandal he has been aligned
The gift of an expensive bottle of wine became his downfall
But in politics much bigger scandals than this not hard to recall
In a tribunal for forgetting he signed for the gift of a bottle of wine as a crime does seem small
Poor old Barry his memory must not be good at all
In his memory it can be said of him he did lose his way
For his forgetfulness with the loss of his top job he was made to pay
But i have a feeling on his huge Premier pension Barry will be okay
That he will not die of hunger would only be fair to say
Yes Barry on his huge pension in life will do fine
And he will never go short of expensive wine
Though no longer Premier of New South Wales with his wealthy friends and his family and wife
He can wine and dine in the top restaurants and enjoy the good life.
