IR­ISH POEM FOR LAUD BAR­NETT

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

QUITE of­ten a name says so much of a man, But let me ex­plain that as best as I can. In Ire­land we suf­fered Charles Haughey by name, And soon Haughty And Haughey were one and the same. While here we'd a man at the head of our State, Who fan­cied him­self as ex­ceed­ingly great. Not seek­ing a ti­tle like Lord Baronet, Baron Bar­nett no less:, and his mind had been set. But he spent all our money and paid for his sin, Though he made us all bar­ren , no Baron for him. So on March Seventeen, We should try to be seen, To be drink­ing our Guin­ness nice an quiet an serene. Then that very same mis­sus, As you both wash the dishes, Won't sug­gest yet again ,"You're so like Bren­dan Be­han"!! CE­CIL CAHILL, South Perth.
