Australian Settler Grabbit Haiku

it’s not about me
but trusting new government
the buck stops with me

bouffant bronwyn gaffes
in discontented winter
bishop serves abbott

march, australians
to dog whistles and old dirges
rule brittania

rich white settler men
demand free speech to enable
human rights abuses

dob in a colleague
divert healthy criticism
away from grabbit

public servant, hush,
under grabbitocracy
submit privately

grabbit bigotry
infests the antipodes
global laughing stock

Jinjirrie, March 2013
