Canadian International Development Agency
The Canadian International Development group,
Like a bombastic Boy Scout troop have gone outside the loop,
Guided by socialist policies of the extreme far left,
Never thinking it might be theft if the taxpayers are left bereft,
Committed like young communists with missionary zeal,
To give billions to foreign deadbeats with obsession surreal,
And announce it on their web page on a daily basis,
Hide those who get these dollars may be dictators or racists.
It’s Canadian taxpayers’ money, therefore it doesn’t count,
From a minister called honorable with a sermon on the mount,
Who make their announcements from exotic tropical locations,
International socialism without calculations or complications.
So called programs, for democracy, modernization or education,
Or maybe earthquakes floods or famines - their socialist salvation,
Or sustainable development where taxpayers would gag,
While these goody-two-shoe politicians stand on a podium and brag.
‘Bout their achievements in places that never heard of democracy,
They hype their hypocrisy ‘bout their bureaucracy and socialist aristocracy.
Never thinking ‘bout the colossal six hundred billion national debt,
And Canadians tax free by September which socialists regret.
