End of story

The story began , we may conjecture, well,

Bright eyed, boisterous in the playground

Yet attentive to the bell

The story proceeded, as the years flew

To leading student politics, arrested

At a protest too

Full of promise, elected to the House to serve the Hutt

Rose steadily, learned quickly how to make the cut

Then, one July, the story ended, as all stories must do

A happy ending this one ,

For the super wealthy few.

  • Prime minister Chris Hipkins stated:”I’m confirming today that under a government I lead there will be no wealth or capital gains tax after the election. End of story.”
