This is the first day of the final week and already we have seen the Labor official campaign launch, together with a bundle of new promises from the major parties. It probably won't end here.
So quiet, the breaking of the dawn;
The people innocent of the coming storm
To chase them, screaming, from their beds,
Media blaring in their heads,
Newsprint all scattered on the lawn,
"Sssh! The kids are up. I shouldn't have sworn!"
And as the sun peaks over trees and sheds
The people await the policy dregs!
But this is the week that requires some thought
Lest our vote, uncaring, is cast for nought!
