The psephologist

Oh Antony Green

Star of the television screen
on election nights


2007 will be a busy year for you

But in downtime what is it that you do?

I see you at the bus stop watching bicyclists zip past

while you wait ...

Would you like a bike for Christmas?

When bus arrives you jump the queue
Naughty, impatient Antony Green


At night on the bus people chat to you

You laugh, feign interest, then bolt

Leaving chatters lookin’ out window - dejected;
poor puds are no match for

Elusive, athletic Antony Green


Striding purposefully down the main road

A pack of frozen four ‘n twenty pies in your hand

Peckish, carnivorous Antony Green


Star of psephology

Mackerras successor

When will you introduce the Greendulum,

Antony Green?

Antony Green, Julie McCrossin, 2BL, you sound like a feeaky stalker. Don't forget your medication.

What do you mean by calling me a feeaky stalker, anonymous? Is it my fault that sitemeter advises me that your server is situated somewhere in Mulbring, NSW and you visited nsr for approximately 2mins and 5 seconds and looked at three pages.

Shee you shoon.
