The Blackout 2003


James Bredin

Iím looking around in the dark for someone to blame,
An electrician or a politician with a name,
The lights went out and the prime minister disappeared,
Liberals said he had lights in Quebec as they sneered.

And still I had no lights as I groped in the dark,
Thirty-five degree heat -- I thought of sleeping in the park,
Finally he said it was lightening in New York,
And as usual, we could shovel it with a fork.

Wall to wall nuclear power plants and none of them work,
Please explain to me why it cost trillions for this pork?
And billions more for Kyoto - Liberal dream,
So down to the UN they let off their socialist steam.
