#Dutton is trending
I spent quite a lot of time today
mournfully reflecting on the deeply disappointing
state of political discourse as it operates just now.
About the ludicrously littoral state of the discussion:
meaning not benthic, pelagic or even remotely deep.
Just shallow, stupid, racist, and pejorative,
More or less any bad three syllable word I care to throw will stick.
When did federal politics become act x scene y of Macbeth?
A tale as told by idiots, yes, yes, dot dot dot, signifying nothing.
Dumb and dumber more and more looks like highbrow humour
Compared to the lapping of the waters on the islands’ shores
Our leaders laugh, of course; full of passionate intensity as they are.
We lack conviction, are drowning in ignorance, sailing on the ship of fools, no land in sight.
God save thee. The albatross has left the building.
