It Wasn’t Me (Even When It Was) – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon


And so this horrible and grizzly affair continues to be exposed. The behaviour of politicians and public servants appearing before the commission has been to deny and claim no knowledge of events, meetings, people, decisions etc. Galling, but expected given the enormity of the legal implications. Not bad for a degree and upwards to $325,000.00 AUS per annum

“The easiest way to solve a problem is to deny it exists.” Isaac Asimov

It Wasn't Me (Even When It Was)

what was the question?
Could you repeat the question?
I don't understand,
say it again please;
Drinking all the water,
looking down.
I can't answer that,
I don't know,
I can't recall,
I don't remember.
Yes, it says that, but I don't know what it means.
I was there (but clearly I wasn't there),
I wrote it, yes, but I can't tell you about that,
someone else sent it,
I'm not sure,
but my recollection is ....
I can tell you
it wasn't me.

  4. Hmm, taking their cue from the January 6th insurrection hearings, are they? Shameful.
