Lashing Out to Keep Clean

You see them in the department.
You hear them on the bus.

You see them at the counter
kicking up a fuss.

You hear them on the talkback.
You see them in the House.

With parliamentary privilege
their position's pretty grouse.

They love the US system,
all claims and counter claims:

they have to nail someone, so
they're sifting out some names.

Yep, they love that suing system
and the lawyers love it too,

anything wild or fallible
should be gaoled or in a queue.

They themselves are spotless,
all righteousness & charm,

heroic, cleaning up the show,
so we won't come to harm.
