'I dreamed I saw Norm Kirk last night,
As big as two or three.
I told him: 'Norm, your party's dead',
"It's half alive said he.
'Its half alive' said he.
The handsome moon like face of Norm Kirk, Leader of the Opposition (from the verb to oppose Mr. Kirk) has been wearing an unhappy frown lately. Not that you would have seen it unless you happened to be at the Labour Party Conference, because Norm has taken to sending his mate Arthur Faulkner along to the TV studio to front for him. The last time was when the polls showed National in the lead and Norm couldn't go along to explain it away because his eyes were all red from crying into his pillow.
