Just shut That Bastard up
I don’t care how you do it
Offer him up the Cup
You said he was illiterate

He has lodged a counter claim and his defence
And half the Act has now been repealed
You told me That Bastard was dense
Your reputation will now be never healed

He was never in a relationship
That the Act describes as Family
Don’t let it now slip
We were only after the documentary

His Defence and Counter Claim
Will end you as it will me
I thought you said his mind was lame
He has lodged a complaint with the Human Rights Committee

You can not use Family Law to Censor
The free thought of a Man in poetry
No matter how you rewrite the Law
It is you who will be the brunt of the comedy

What do you want us to do now then
See if he will consent if we change it to read
He wasn’t violent to a ministers’ employed woman
Just offer him that and see where it will lead

So now you the minister are protected
From the constituents’ questions and prose
What Act will you now have erected
To silence everyone who now knows

Don’t worry about that we have his files
We have sold it to a bank and the media
It doesn’t matter if the electorate sees it as vile
It is his silence that we need here

Get him to consent to the change while he is stressed
Stop him from emailing or posting on the internet
I can’t be seen the Genetically Modified Political Representative not the best
He will be Our disabled feeble minded seen silent Pet

Artist's Description


X03200914 is a Victorian Magistrates Court file number. It was taken out under Crimes Family Violence Act 1987, portecting the female electrorate Officer of Joe Helper MP, state member for Ripon, describing her as AFM. I lodged a writen defence and counter claim. She has never been a family member of mine and I have never been violent towards her. On the day it was to be contested the Police changed it to read Jochen Helper ( Joe Helper MLA for Ripon ).
Article 19 of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights grants the free expression of opinion in any media. This is my free expression.
The Order restricts me from emailing about, posting on the internet about, or posting any document proporting to come from the protected person ( Joe Helper ). To me this is an attempt to censor me.

P.S. on 24th May 2011, I have to defend myself in the Victorian Magistrates Court for alledgedly breaching this Order by posting on the internet about Joe Helper, Victorian Parliamentary Member for Ripon, and his Wind Farm brouchers, even though the Family Violence Protection Act 2008 can not be used by a Politician against a constituent, and, the Order had already expired !!
