LITTLE KEVIN TAKES AIM

Phil Roberts 1957 (Melbourne)



A demon and a monster
Is this creature known as Rudd,
He fires at us with mortars
But his every round’s a dud.

He tries to shoot our hopes down
Taking aim at all our dreams,
This evil thing named Kevin Rudd
A monster and a fiend.

The working class are his targets
He’d like ti to kill us all,
But when it comes to action
He just hasn’t got the gall.

He’s laughing at our poverty
Shooting down our final hopes,
He’s got the range, got the aim
But his weapon’s got no scope.

So Rudd the Dud is aiming
To keep us in the red,
He’s taking aim, he’s taking fire
And soon our hopes are dead!

THE END
