' Ruddy Shame


A Ruddy shame they've shafted
Kev this way - he's always been
a decent man, a nicer bloke you
understand in politics is rarity -
a precious gift disgracing all the
dirty depths these pollies pace

He's plain for sure, of vapid flair
inflated by sincerity to where it
makes you cringe; it's cruel - he
cannot lie convincingly, concede
or hide distress about duplicity in
lives his nearest colleagues led

With due regret it made him tick
I'd guess; his interest isn't power
of status misapplied, the game's
right of reply he sacrificed for air
to breathe that's clear and freed
intrigues of other's perfidy

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Out of the bosom of the Air
Out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken,
Over the woodlands brown and bare,
Over the harvest-fields forsaken,
Silent, and soft, and slow
