Pompous Canadian Politicians
Should we believe overeducated bilingual politicians?
Politically correct, appointed who sit on commissions,
Miserable minister or commissioner who swears he is right,
Wants our UN peacekeepers in Africa to find someone to fight.
Went down to the UN to impress all those in the Third World,
Was invited to tour the sub-Saharan underworld,
Taxpayers’ money of course and talk of socialist conditions,
Just like Lenin or Stalin in their true communist traditions.
Full of their own importance and Trudeau’s Charter of Rights,
Written for all terrorists, feminists and abortionists in sight,
Maybe visit Castro and sing the International once more,
Just because Trudeau and his crowd did it all once before.
They would like to raise public awareness for their communist cause,
Never use those words though; it might dampen the applause,
Where referendums or recall of politicians are not allowed,
Nor proportional representation by that Ottawa crowd.
