The German Jockey and the Wild Pony

The German Jockey and the Wild Pony

The wild colt
Of the Federal high plain
Who could not maintain his vote
Took on all the Victorian
His passion for power he could not halt

Neighing and prancing
In the backbench avoiding shadows
He soon mastered all those around dancing
All of the polls of highs and the lows
Soon became the leader preferring farming

He hit the lead
When the old stallion retired
No vote from the people did he need
Only the wit and words he hired
The Wild Brumby the new seed

All the might and power
He mastered all at his word
The leading horse of the hour
No descent from within the pack was heard
Only the praise of the media room shower

He soon thought
All would bend to his will
Any resistance would amount to naught
Creating laws making all family all descent to kill
Control was what his German jockey had taught

The little German jockey
Soon held the reigns to the bit in the Brumbys’ teeth
Feeding him modified grain and words falsely
Leading the wild Brumby to his misguided belief
To attack with slander a man so publically

The media did only ask
What the same way you treated this man
For the wild pony to lose the plot and task
In haste voicing publically lies like a cretin
Words the ABC did not mask

The untamed wild pony
With the genetically modified minister Joe on his back
Believed all that the jockey fed him even the phoney
All sense of enquiry and self control he did lack
And Joe the Helper claimed more than my family

Now the premium wild colt
His slander and lack of control publically seen
Running around all the media copy to halt
The ABC transmissions of last Thursday to wipe clean
And to my injuries he adds more as salt.
