Ballad of a hollow man:
He doesn’t wear a mask, and he doesn’t hold a hose.
He doesn’t order vaccines, because he’d rather strike a pose.
He doesn’t act on climate, the weather ‘aint his role.
And he doesn’t read the science, lest it hurt his mates in coal.
He doesn’t ponder rape claims, he leaves it to his men.
He doesn’t talk to women, he just takes the word of Jen.
He doesn’t answer questions, and he doesn’t feel the shame.
He’d rather take the credit, and let others take the blame.
He doesn’t lead the nation, that isn’t what he’s for.
He’s there for uncle Rupert, till we send him out the door’
[The Byron Shire Echo, September 8, 2021, p. 40]
