chose the first line


A woman who ran a campaign
To assist the poor masculine  brain
Found her husband rebelled
And frequently yelled
She's simply my old 'ball-and-chain!'


A 'pollie' who's known as Bob Katter
Is, sometimes, as mad as a hatter,
He can be a charmer,
He fights for the farmer,
And he rouses them all with his patter.

When Parliament met recently
His party was easy to see.
His followers danced
And jiggled and pranced!
He's a very eccentric M.P.!

From the Press.
"WHEN it comes to dancing, Bob Katter, in politics as in life, marches to the beat of his own drum.The colourful federal leader of the Katter Australian Party - the fun party, he proclaimed - led 57 of his 65 candidates in a flash mob outside Queensland's Parliament House yesterday.The dance, choreographed by a Brisbane troupe and taught to the participants 20 minutes before it was performed, was a postscript to the first Katter Australian Party national conference."

A 'pollie' is a politician. An M.P. is a Member of Parliament.
