The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - How Chretien Helped Zimbabwe

How Chretien Helped Zimbabwe

by

James Bredin

Chretien, like his friend Mugabe, wants to stay prime minister for life,
And he will buy the next election when and if he decides the time is rife,
He fired those who might even want to or have an eye for his job,
While his Liberals tax and spend like a demented socialist mob.

At that meeting in Brisbane, Zimbabwe could have been expelled,
But Chretien backed Mugabe, formed a committee that quelled,
And stopped the sanctions, and investigations till after that election.
Democracy means nothing compared to socialist connections.

Chretien’s ego and Mugabe’s are giants among equals,
And at the upcoming G8 meeting we will get to see the sequels,
A billion dollars here and a billion dollars there should be plenty,
Just to keep his African buddy from running on empty.

Of course they’ll claim that the billions are bound for democracy,
Not someone like Mugabe in Zimbabwe’s ongoing hypocrisy,
It’s for food for the starving - not for wars and one-man-rule,
Not for Swiss bank accounts - that would be callous and cruel.
