The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Ottawa Shame
The name of the game in Ottawa shows that have no shame,
Pretend they’re going to this war just for the media name and fame,
Not too near Iraq while old helicopters fall out of the sky,
Pompous politicians still shake their heads while some pilots die.
They insult the Americans and call them "bastards," and "moron,"
Pretend at the UN that there’s not going to be a war on,
Sure that they can prove old Sea King helicopters can fly,
And that missing $billion and Shawinigan shenanigans was a lie.
Piously point fingers at everyone but themselves in fact,
Do everything in secret and hide it in the Access Act,
The Charter and things will continue forever as they are,
And that 9/11 never happened and didn’t leave a scar.
And Homeland Security is just an American thing,
And Liberal flying legacy will survive on one wing,
No need to negotiate when you can call a snap election,
And stay in Ottawa forever with your Liberal selection.
