CBC and Don Cherry
The CBC is in a quandary about Don Cherry’s remarks,
Seems that what he said, got them mad and has set off some sparks,
Not politically correct so they started a witch hunt,
The Language Commissioner also said he was much too blunt.
So appointees at the CBC want an inquisition,
For this sports commentator when he explains his position,
Everything will be censored especially offensive remarks,
And Hockey Night in Canada may have to be played in the dark.
Because appointed officials are more important than players,
Protect politically correct mandarins and some soothsayers,
And then some members of parliament got involved in the fray,
Shouting and screaming and yelling to substantiate their pay.
They want to censor him using a seven-second delay,
Make sure he’s politically correct when he describes the play,
This is how multicultural mandarins will deliver pain,
Inquisitors can’t see themselves in the mirror, they’re so vain.
