Title: By-Election

(Rain forest))

A strange phenomenon occurred
which caused much disarray,
leaflets posted to our homes
at all times, night and day.
The colours of the rainbow,
arriving through the door
each telling us how we should vote
and what each had in store...
All the local wheelie bins
are loaded with this `stuff`
and don’t forget the postmen,
they`ve surely had enough.
The volume of the paper,
the most we`ve ever seen
has proved to us, beyond all doubt,
the parties are not green.
Brazil has now arrived, it`s here,
it’s everywhere on view
Re-cycling plants are standing by
to pulp the ballyhoo.
So goodbye all you canvassers
it seemed a close-run race,
we hope you`re not exhausted
from your frantic paper chase
