Avant garde, no?

How awesome is Kim Beazley?

The answer is simple - he is DAMN awesome.

Check out this beat poetry he laid down in parliament yesterday.

Five budgets without a decent tax break.
Then $10.
$10 – already gone.
Gone on the triple whammy.
Wages slashed.
Rising interest rates.
Soaring petrol prices.

Fair dinkum.
This treasurer's like a poker machine.
You put in.
You pull the arm.
Nothing.
You put in again.
Another pull.
Nothing.
Time after time.
Nothing.

But then.
At last – the lights flash.
The bells ring.
Crowds gather round.
"Jackpot!" he crows.
10 bucks.
That's the drop.
10 bucks.

----

That's the drop, hip cats.
