The Tedious Git from Sydney

Coiffed like his idol, the Mentalist

The Tedious Git from Sydney

Is a sight to behold


He gives no quarters

To those around him,

A louche in speech

A louse in deed


Blatantly blasé

In a beige blazer

Burbling blah-blahs from a belly

Rich in Bundy and coke.


And what of this prize nitwit ?

A moralist, yes

With a tongue of lard

A lead foot


‘You should be ashamed of yourself’,

He says to me with hauteur and contempt

But he should check his facts

Before such a tactless attack


But this Aussie man on the dias

Can’t help himself.

We should leave him be

To his inevitable fate


He wears his clothes like the Emperor.

It must be the latest fashion

To parade shrill ignorance and disingenuous

Non sequiturs.


But wait a bit….


A sinecure must be found

For his magnificent talents

A high chair ? Something to rattle.

Perhaps a pacifier amongst the noisy, incoherent throng.


We should stage his grand exit

From the comedy of errors

A man who is destined to go far

And the farther away the better !
