Canadian Ministry of Culture
The Ministry of Culture will justify its existence,
Parade and push their propaganda with proper persistence,
Pompous prudes of constant politically correct causes,
With righteous religious zeal and appropriate prearranged pauses.
They will produce these pious pictures that we should all see,
And be influenced and impressed by their taxpayers’ spree,
Because these appointed multilingual elitists know it all,
And we should thank them, vote Liberal and go back to our stall.
Curators of managed multiculturalism and Charters,
Manipulating misinformation ‘bout terrorist martyrs,
Rogue refugees that proclaim righteous rights in incoming flights,
International socialism proclaimed from prodigious heights,
By those with a handle on heritage and tradition to malign.
In pompous propaganda for the fortunate few feds to feel fine,
Out of reach with reality and the man on the street,
Isolated among their own, away from the cold and the heat.
