In my country we abandon asylum seekers to their fate,
but we are lucky with Amanda, Ruddock and Wilson Tuckey.
We have a Ship of State and a Shit of Hate:
the latter is John Howard,
and as is often heard, his title is: “Prime Turd”.
The whole of government has no name,
we just call it the “Ship of Shame”.
