Welcome to my regular Friday song/tune day, ladies and gentlemen, where I pick a piece of music that reflects my mood or the times, to share with you. But first, a poem about the Australian Federal election campaign.

The less I say I about the election campaign,
the better. Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, oi, oi. oi.
Three word slogan, “You’re gonna die.”
That’s four, but who’s countin’?
Stick that up your Pine Gap.

It’s excruciating, ladies and gentlemen, but at least we get to vote and afterwards, whinge about the result. Let’s listen to Flogging Molly performing The Worst Day Since Yesterday. Sing it with me.

Stay well, everyone, and sift your oats from your blarney.

Kind Regards.
Tracy.

  1. I love that band. I got to see them perform outdoors at a beach town on a day that ended up pouring rain. Everyone held tarps up around everyone else and the “roadies” held tarps over the band. Amazingly none of the electric shorted out. Yep — one good thing about voting is bitching about it afterward. Sometimes the only good thing.

      1. Here in the untied states policy isn’t the big thing in an election any more. It’s “us vs them” Who cares what a politician believes, the line of thinking he/she follows, what he/she hopes to achieve? Psh… OH well. I woke up deeply cynical this morning…

    1. Those forces are at work here too, Anne. I have to accept that many people don’t have the same priorities as me. No one can be surprised by the government we got last time because that was the popular choice. I can’t imagine why the same voters would suddenly change their mind about that. Oh well. It is in the hands of the voters now.

  2. I’m sitting right next to you on that fence Tracy. Well the first 3 weeks zipped by, even with Albo missing in action and no policy commitments from his lot yet, it was very ho-hum. Soon be all over🤔
