The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - The Ghetto

The Ghetto


James Bredin

Hundreds of ghettos, called enclaves, are now spread all around,
Because of proud multicultural policies of renown,
That Trudeau and Chretien together thought would be great,
In their Charter without referendum, property rights or debate.

Those in their ghettos now stay buried in their various cultures,
Though in Paris they come out sometimes and riot like vultures,
Nor is there any integration in our multicultural streets,
No American type melting pot allowed by left-wing elites.

But Trudeauís Charter gave rights to "EVERYONE" on the globe,
UN refugees with aids at the airports that no one dare probe,
This reality and the writing on the wall, way above our heads,
Lost long ago to our multicultural Ottawa feds.

Bragging rights at the UN in our pious pompous isolation,
No need to change a thing; no need for integration,
And the second and third generation can stay where they are,
No need to learn French, English or think that this is bizarre.
