A Sunday Poem — “Where The Rubber Meets The Road”


With so much accumulated

under the bus of the Conservative Party,

the wheels appear to no longer touch the road

on certain key issues.


Like, military procurement;

Senate reform;

Aboriginal women;

Veterans’ Affairs…


Little wonder

it’s the first party

to use an airplane

this election campaign.
