The Sweet Soothing Sounds of Ideology

Time for some political poetry. And who writes political poetry better than Lewis Carrol?

The time has come, the Walrus said,
To talk of many things:
Of shoes and ships and income tax
And whether pigs have wings...

Or Rudyard Kipling?

Oh, Left is Left and Right is Right, and never the twain shall meet
Till Earth and Sky stand presently at the Speaker's judgement seat;
But there is neither Left nor Right, border nor breed nor birth
When two citizens stand face to face, though they come from the ends of the earth

Actually, let's try that one again:

Oh, Left is right and Right is wrong, and evermore shall be,
Or is the Right-wing right and the Left-wing wrong? It doesn't make sense to me -
Oh, it's mandate this and it's referendum that, and it's all ideology -
Oh, Left is Left and Right is Right, and evermore shall be.

Thankyou, ladies and gentlemen.
