‘Twas the week before Christmas, and all through the House,
Nats announced policies, they’re usually scared to espouse.
Journos on holiday, Key out of reach on his Hawaiian vacation,
It was the time to let slip, their plan for ACC privatisation.
These lines hardly rhyme at all, but please heed and beware,
At risk is your workplace injury compensation and healthcare.
The Nats already deny cover with the greatest of ease
They just label your injury a degenerative disease
More court cases, less cover, won’t it be great!
When we let private insurers, compete with the State
The Aussie insurers will make 200 million, and that isn’t free
The ones who end up paying, are the suckers – that’s you and me
Private insurers make their money by not paying out
‘Too bad, you’re not covered!’, is what they do shout
Profits, lawyers, and marketing – how can all this be cheap?
We are about to get fleeced, like 4 million sheep
The Insurance Council has donated millions to the Nats
The stench that you smell is the odour of rats
So fight for your ACC, it’s one of a kind
To let the Nats steal this treasure, we’d be out of our mind
