Happy Birthay Poem for Gina
She could sit on a yacht,
take it easy on the beach,
or selfishly stay
out of everyone’s reach.
She doesn’t need interference
building dreams and aspirations,
a task started by her Father,
the creator of great inspiration.
Without these creators like Gina,
our country would certainly flounder,
but with more of them here in Australia,
our economy would be far sounder.
Say what you like about Gina,
she is out there having a ‘go’,
unlike some of those envious critics
whose top speed is definitely ’slow’ -
Creators create out of nothing,
satisfaction is what they sustain,
they beautify life, so let’s have more Ginas
to replace leaders who lead down the drain.
Governments need to decide
to amply reward enterprise -
and not stifle with bad regulations
which give turmoil instead of a prize.
Today, in Australia, the government’s intent
on taxing work, investment and thrift,
rewarding the mediocre and idle,
leaving the rest of us to pay for their gift.
So what do we do about the critics?
They are drowning in envy you see.-
Are their sad little souls so unhappy
to see Gina so efficient and free?
So Happy Birthday to you Gina -
keep on being creative and strong -
here’s hoping those sad, envious critics
will one day find themselves singing YOUR song!
