The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - The Canadian-Argentine Disease
The Canadian-Argentine Disease
Canada too has caught the Argentine disease,
Where the government is keen and eager to appease,
Where the dollar is fast closing in on sixty,
Compared to the US dollar even down in Dixie.
They promote payola to the Maritimes and Quebec,
While national debt and dollar advertise we’re a wreck.
Bilingualism pushed by government bureaucracy,
And unions rule with their social aristocracy.
Where welfare and equalization buys power,
They pump out their propaganda by the hour,
With fraternity and equality for all,
And Human Rights tribunals set up in every hall.
Guaranteed jobs and government dependency,
Multiculturalism with communist tendency,
And phony refugees with no immigration control,
Is Canada going down one large toilet bowl?
Why can’t we see the handwriting on the wall?
‘Cause no politician has ever had recall.
How far must we go on this road down to hell?
I just diagnosed the disease now can we get well?
