One thing about John Clarke,
You were never in the dark,
About what he said and wanted you to hear.
Though he didn’t spell it out,
You were never left in doubt
For his message came out quite precise and clear.
And amongst his many missions,
He’d an eye on politicians,
For he showed them little mercy with the pen.
And he found the likes of Abbott,
Could be copied like a parrot,
But unlike himself we’ll likely see again.
CECIL CAHILL, South Perth.
