A GAME OF POLLS
(Australian Election 2013)
Written by Giordano Nanni & Hugo Farrant

Welcome to Juice Rap News, our twentieth edition
And we’d like to thank you on this special occasion
for the views, likes and comments since commencing transmission
But enough celebration, we have a topic for your attention:

There's a TV show that's now an international sensation
people tune in each season with avid obsession
It rules the planet and balances the fate of nations
I’m referring of course to Democratic elections.

The latest season -Winter -is Coming to Australia,
and Aussies have tuned in in droves to finally discover
who’ll claim the throne on the mighty hill of Canberra
Join us, down under as we meet each contender:

We begin with the current Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd,
Leader of the Labour Party. -Listen up
this is K-Rudd, back to smack the track with a K-Rap classic
-What are your tactics to engage with the masses?

-Robert I'll be candid, it's a fact that these other candidates
are amateurs, out of touch with average families
my twitter feed has one point three million fans on it
NiHaaaao, bitches! check my Mandarin languages

-What’s your policy? -Let me begin with an apology –
For being so awesome, nah, kidding! ... honestly,
it’s for the Stolen Generations... SORRY, KIDS!
Now we can forget about colonization, and move on with shit

and focus on racism in the Northern Territory
where we can do more damage for later apologies
-And the economy? -I’ll impose a tax on mining profits
which is sure to be a popular and... AAAACH! -what's this?

-Stabbed in the back... -By whom?
-it is I! -(gasp) the red woman
-I'm assumin' leadership of this party -I'm a true slaya
-Julia Gillard! How will you pander to Australia?

-Listen here, the soothing strains of my nasal song
Are tailored to the an ear; they'll sing along
And with Peter Garret, Penny Wong and Wayne Swan
On harmonies, we’re so strong we can’t go wrong

We will move forward together... and rise
I’ll never implement a carbon tax ever... that's right
and on these cancerous packs we'll have blank designs
and, I will now implement a carbon tax... I mean 'price'

-Uh, that’s nice... but now let's cross over to have an
opening chat with the Opposition Leader, Tony Abbott
-G’day, Robert, good to be with you
-So how will you appeal to the Australian people?

-I’ve got sex appeal! I'll give em what they want
The other candidates underestimate just what a bunch of cunts
the Australian public actually is
So my first tactic will be not -uh -having breasts

And not being some ranga witch,
And whatever this Fanta pants bitch has done as leader, I'll cancel it
to the Australian populace, I say don’t fall for this
She’s a communist, and she supported a misogynist

-No, I've reached the end of my tolerance tether
I'll not be lectured on misogyny by this man, not ever
He's a sexist Catholic pig, see the irony?
-Aww come on, freckle tits... here's some ironing

Now, quit your bitching, get back in the kitchen
Australia isn’t grown-up enough to elect women
-Take a suppository of wisdom, you priest-abuse victim
The people are with me, look at me knitting.... AAAACH!

Shot in the back -Again? -here’s Kevin,
back to commence the blood shedding: the red wedding!
With my new look, I'm ready; I'm taking over again!
What do you say to that, Tony, my friend?

-You’re bloody rudderless: Time for my budgie smugglers...
What about people smugglers; Labor's never tough as us!-
Wrong! My new policy is slapping you silly
We'll divert all asylum seekers to Papua New Guinea

-God that's double racism, I need to fight him with something
I’ll build a wall in the North to stop the Wildlings from coming
-Nice try Tony, but you’re way out of your depth
I'm from Queensland you piece of shit, that's as racist as it gets

-Ban abortion, and gays... even my sister
-You dickhead -Stupid fat prime minister
-Well, it looks like both sides are equally balanced, but
wait, I’m told there might be another challenger

-We cross to correspondent Ken Oathcarn, Ken, you with me?
-Ken Oathcarn! I'm in London at the Ecuadorian Embassy
-We hear that this year there’s to be
another contender seeking a senate seat. -That’s right! I'm set to speak

With a fella called... um... called... -Julian Assange
-Ta mate. Julian Assange.
He's running for the Senate in these electoral races
I like him -he keeps saying "courage is cunt... something" –Contagious

-Outrageous! But, mate, with this whole look you got going on
you got Buckley's hope of getting votes in from
all the Sheilas and Blokes back home in OZ, but.
What you need’s a make-over -Err... Ok, but... -Good onya!

-Strewth! this came out even better than I’d hoped
I’m feeling it! Are you feeling it? -Bloody Oath
-Now you're ready to go hard in Australian politics,
what message do you wanna say to the populace?

[ Julian Assange sings]

-We have the chance to turn the pages over
We can write what we want to write
We gotta make things leak, so we can get much bolder

We’re all wire-tapped now
We’re all being fed lies
Not long till we get all of the rats out
Once we turn on all the lights

You're the light that the world's demanding
Make it bright and make things clear, oh, woah
We're not gonna sit in darkness
We're not gonna live with fear, oh, woah

Err... well, Ken, thanks for that enlightening update
on the latest candidate to arrive in the race
Kevin, Julia, Tony -thanks also for your time today
Good luck to you all in this violent campaign

And as Aussies head to the ballots to vote
We wish them wisdom, and vision beyond the dramatics and smoke
The Game of Polls is a spectacular show of course.
Chances are the next season is coming soon to your shores

And the first season of our own show is a wrap too
but we eagerly look forward to bringing you back through
brand new episodes with heavy doses of that juice.
Robert Foster, The Internet, reporting for Rap News
