The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - The Hague, the plague and Toronto

The Hague, the plague and Toronto


James Bredin

The UN International Court of Justice is at The Hague,
And whatís the connection to the likely Toronto AIDS plague?
Itís the United Nations and they had this big AIDS debate,
International socialists arrived and made Toronto irate.

The Hague is where they put those connected with war crimes,
But what the UN did to Toronto is worse a thousand times,
Infected AIDS plagued refugees they left here, walking around,
Free medication and welfare for life; how does that sound?

Immigration activists lined up around the block,
Making pompous pronouncements to dampen the plague shock,
We have an international obligation, they say, to do good,
All global AIDS patients enroute to Toronto understood.

And they all claim Charter Rights because of discrimination,
As they were shown how to fill out their refugee applications,
The pompous politically correct canít become infected,
And Toronto the proud, they say is therefore protected.

A hundred bureaucrats to browse refugee applications,
Not allowed announcements, referendums, recall or sensations,
And if you catch AIDS, thatís obviously your own fault,
You can claim you came down with the plague by default.
