Thinking of releasing a new Xmas CD...

 ...dedicated to a certain pollie.
About certain state infrastructure...

Sing along if you get the urge.
Or see a doctor about that particular issue...

♫ I'm dreaming of a state-owned railway,
    Just like the one we used to own,
    Where the staff are merry and bright,
    And the trains could ruuuun all night.♫

♫ Away in State Parl'ment,
   No dosh for the trains,
   Little Lord Baillieu
   Tightens the reins.
   Be near us, Lord Baillieu,
   I ask thee to stay,
  Close by us forever 
  As we commute every day. 

♫ God rest ye merry, gentlemen
   Let nothing you dismay,
   Remember, ticket pri-i-ices
  Will go up New Years Day.
  To make all us pleb-i-ans
  Keep the network afloat,
  With many a penny and groat,
  Penny and groat,
 With many a penny and groat.

♫ Good King Baillieu looked out
   On the empty coffers,
   Where the crumbs lay round about
   The palty tender offers
   Brightly shone the bulb that lit
   Upon a plan so cruel
   To make the tickets cost so much
   And treat us all like a fooo-oool.

Excellent lyrics... but I worry those tunes might have been going around in your head before the lyrics sprang forth...

Nice work!

"Hither, page, and stand by me
If thou know'st it, telling
Yonder peasant, who is he?
Where and what his dwelling?"
"Sire, he lives a good league hence
Underneath the mount - ain
Plotting how to hold
Pow'r he tries to main - tain."

Mr Failleu has ALOT to answer for... and he will NOT get voted back in next time. Not long until his term is over. No nurse will vote him in.

Words form the thread on which we string our experiences.
Fumbling for a word is everyone's birthright.
