Ruud And Turnbull - Poem by Francis Duggan
Australia's P M Kevin Ruud and opposition leader Malcolm Turnbull many things in common share
They are very wealthy fellows each of them a millionaire
And neither of them did have a privileged childhood which they like to talk about
Of the facts of their poor boy makes good story they never leave us in doubt.
To the working class of voter themselves they like to endear
Though of their underprivileged childhoods many do not wish to hear
Their hard earned wealth and fame does not tell us of the kind of men they are
One should never judge a person by their wealth or house or car.
'Twould seem to me that Ruud and Turnbull at their power and wealth feel shame
Otherwise it does seem obvious they are playing the political game
Many like to hear the story of the poor boy making good
By guileful people like Ruud and Turnbull such things are well understood.
Powerbrokers, wealthy and famous people good luck to them anyway
Kevin Ruud and Malcolm Turnbull for themselves have done okay
Kevin's job Malcolm wants badly their praises their supporters sing
Most politicians are power hungry with them that's a natural thing.
