Educated by the Media
I don’t like it when the media tells me what to do or what to like,
This often takes the place of democratic debate and I dislike,
When they walk hand in hand with pompous Liberal politicians,
And pump out their propaganda day after day in multiple editions.
When they tell me ‘bout poor people on the other side of the earth,
That I have a responsibility to maintain without dialogue or mirth,
And I don’t need referendums or callbacks; I should just believe,
No democratic discussion; I should be glad what little I receive.
And at their G8 meeting, they’re going to forgive all foreign debt,
Then they’ll add it to our national debt so there’s no need to fret,
And that six hundred billion dollar debt will just grow and grow,
And I should be so happy that Canadians can kowtow.
