The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - A Canadian Contract for Canadians
A Canadian Contract for Canadians
Why do pompous Canadian politicians all get Ottawa washed?
Why does it appear as if their brains have all been squashed?
Why does party discipline mean that they all fall in line?
Why do they treat the party leader as if he is divine?
Why are Canadians themselves treated like servile slaves?
No test for incoming terrorists, illegals and refugees arriving in waves?
Theyíve got their Charter rights given to everyone in the zoo,
Written by Chretien and Trudeau back in nineteen eighty-two.
Will Canadians ever be allowed to see the incoming flights?
These people arriving nightly - all Ben Laden types?
Why does Castro and Mugabe think that Chretien is great?
International socialism and communism this dour dictatorsí debate?
Itís time Canadians made a contract just among themselves,
To fix these constitutional troubles - too long on the shelves,
A constitution for Canadians - not all mankind though,
Quebec didnít sign this Charter, written by Chretien and Trudeau.
