The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Unemployment in Canada
Unemployment in Canada
The Liberals know what to do about that,
Treat unemployment like a rabbit in a hat,
Make it disappear as though nothing was there,
All an illusion so Canadians ask, "Where?"
Unemployed numbers will just disappear,
And Liberals of course are always sincere,
Employ all those people, make them officials,
Man socialist programs and be beneficial.
Then the unemployment statistics will change,
And nothing will appear to be very strange,
Prime minister can stay in office forever,
No one will guess how devious and clever.
‘Cause without term limits he can stay for life,
Staying in Ottawa without any strife,
Except for one little small little thing;
Value of the dollar and the currency sting.
When the loonie is a dime will anyone care?
Canadians have been told not to compare,
Stay in the country and they’ll have no worry,
Listen to the CBC and enjoy a snow flurry.
