Some Tweet Poetry

I’ve been writing a few little fit-in-a-tweet poems, and thought I’d share them with the better half of my social media world (yes, you, reading this right now). Because I am such a tech guru (!), I’m ’embedding’ them here (WOW, I know, right?).  Well, I’ll try anyway.  If it doesn’t work as planned, I’ll hastily edit to replace with screenshots…  Apologies in advance if I fuck it up and you’re one of the ripped-off early readers who sees a half-arsed shemozzle of a post.

In a political master-stroke, abbott has saved the nation (and the good state of Western Australia) many millions of dollars and enticed entire remote indigenous communities to relocate to the city, simply by making them aware that governments cannot “endlessly subsidise lifestyle choices if those lifestyle choices are not conducive to the kind … Continue reading Welcome To City

Tony and The Greyhounds Save Australia

In yet another leak from the ranks of the ailing government, it was revealed that a weekend brain-storming session was convened in the Prime Moron’s Office (PMO), and that a unanimous decision was made to use asylum seekers from offshore detention centres as live bait to draw terrorists from their suburban spider-holes. In light of recent revelations about the continued use of live baiting for the ‘blooding’ of racing dogs all around Australia, an idea was formed in the bright minds running the PMO. Convening a secret meeting on Sunday morning, the PMO facilitated a brain-storming session to capitalise on the … Continue reading Tony and The Greyhounds Save Australia
