New Zealand prime minister Michael Savage as a pharaoh standing on top of 'the pyramid of power', holding 'the scroll of Labour [Labour Party]' in his hand and being worshipped by four members of the poor and fanned by two of his cabinet ministers. Leaders of the Coalition government which had lost the election, George Forbes and Gordon Coates are tumbling off the dark side of the pyramid into 'the desert of opposition'. Forbes says to Coates 'Let us leave with becoming dignity, O Gordon!' and Coates replies 'That's all very well, but I slipped'.
