Getting to the bottom of a troubled election – devil is in the detail
O'Neill & Gamato defend handling of 'worst' national poll

False Messiah (The Politician)


Out of his sugar-coated mouth
Came words of gold;
Boastful tales
And promises of development.
Praise the Lord for such a servant!

We thought he was the messiah
Sent from the Haus Tambaran
To heal our moni- sicknesses
And give us our daily bread
Oh Hallelujah!

We voted him
And made him king.
Time passed;
One year, two years
He never returned

Tough luck for us
‘Oh Father, hallowed by thy name
Please hear our cries
And send your messiah back to us.

But, alas, there’s no answers
Only prayers.
