Beaten by a nose…

The PM, bless his buttocks,

believes in gas.

But a few people

(well quite a lot)

are wrinkling their noses

and trying to get

out of Scotty’s lift.

**

What problem is he solving?

**

Not price

we Aussies are paying

through the nose.

**

Not supply.

1000megawatts?

(Gezundheit)

That’s what he wants

on tap, you know

But demand has dropped –

62% since 2014

**

Not emissions

(except maybe

of particulates.

Gas is more aerosol

but as we all know

from COVID

that doesn’t mean

less dangerous)

**

Not investor confidence.

They’re confused

by this “small government”

having such

enormous hands

all of a sudden.

**

It’s all a bit on the nose

to tax payers too.

Building a frumpish

gas plant

will take 5 years

and loads of debt.

Seems a funny

choice for infrastructure

investment

when we could have

railways

battery storage

roads

recycling plants

mobile towers in remote areas

internet speeds at world standard.

**

Or even just a methane

processing plant

next to every tip.

**

That’s a gas, Prime Minister.

Not your normal hot air.
