Another message for Paul Martin
Paul: youíre moving to Sussex Street is now such a sure thing,
But will you emulate your predecessor who flew on one wing?
Who wrote the Charter with his old comrade and mentor Trudeau,
With communist property rights that should be changed as you know.
Will your legacy be like Jeanís - one of constant tax and spend?
Of Shawinigan shenanigan moves with our money to lend,
In one of your Challenger jets - bought with billions of our tax loonies,
Do us a favor and cancel that GST of Mulroney.
Make your legacy in Canada -- not in Africa or New York,
Not like your forerunner -- that well known international dork,
Donít dodge and dither on health care just like him,
And everything else in Shawinigan way out on a limb.
