Scary Fairy Sherry breeches the holy vault
of the national legislature.
A hush falls as she swoops overhead
sprinkling magic dust on all the
rotund, beefy-cheeked, porky politicians.
They stop name-calling and squabbling about
more tax breaks for the rich,
and a "cost-of-living" increase in
their own gazillion dollar "extra benefits" package,
(to be financed by cuts in services to the poor) -
the only two items on the agenda.
They stop asking, "Mr Speaker,
will Someone please tell me, Mr Speaker,
when Mr (Harper, Trudeau, Mulcair)
will tell the Canadian people
what the fuddle-duddle
is going on?"
The roars of approbation
and equally loud disgruntled booing
come to a full stop.
They all (for once united)
fix their beady eyes,
jowls quivering in consternation,
on the small, green eco-warrior
at the podium.
The security guards are not sure of protocol.
They finger their holsters nervously
until she shoots them a look
and they desist.
You don't want to piss off
a person with magical powers.
Scary Fairy Sherry flutters
at the microphone.
"Ahem. This is to inform you
that the Women's Revolution
In a moment, I will strike you
mute and motionless
long enough for the Women of the World
to get our housekeeping done.
We will sweep the armies off the landscape,
open the storage silos where food
is uselessly warehoused,
and feed the hungry.
We will order all multinationals
to pay their fair share of taxes,
clean up their mess,
and reduce all emissions to zero,
"We will begin programs all over the world,
to protect, nurture and restore
wildlife and ecosystems.
We will develop clean energy systems
all over Mother Earth,
to provide work and reverse the damage
oil-based energy has caused.
There will fricking be
No More Fracking.
We recognize you are addicted
to the oil energy model.
When you wake up
(to a clean green world)
we will send you all to treatment
for detoxing and rehabilitation.
Do not worry.
You will find out
there is another way to live.
"All of this rehabilitation of the earth
will employ every able body, for fair pay,
thus ending poverty and hopelessness
Every person will have a purpose,
and a means of sustaining him or herself
and their families.
We will enforce Sustainable Only use
of resources world-wide.
We will set up Task Forces everywhere
for restoration of the health of land and sea.
"Grandmothers will replace you
in positions of governance.
We will make decisions
based upon the well-being
of our children's children's children,
to the seventh generation.
Decisions will be based on life and health,
not greed, money or power.
And you can bet your sweet patooties
we will not be sending
our pink-cheeked boys
into the desert with guns.
Not gonna happen.
"So you can feel, deal and heal.
We don't really care.
We have a lot of work to do,
cleaning up all your mess.
Scary Fairy Sherry waves her wand.
The porky politicians
topple over onto their desks
for a Hundred Year Snooze.
And the women of the world
get to work.
LOL. Don't I wish!!!!!! For Susan's prompt at Mid-Week Motif : to write about how much people can get done when they work together. Or, alternatively, one's fantasy about power. I picked the fantasy.
The fuddle duddle comment harks back to when Pierre Trudeau (father of our current incumbent) famously said the F-word in legislature, and covered it up by saying he had uttered "Fuddle Duddle".
