Canadian Political Shenanigans


James Bredin

If a Canadian politician wants to clean out the bank,
Take the national treasury and send it all to Cousin Frank,
The people who decide whether this might be right or wrong,
Were appointed to their six-figure jobs by a Liberal ding dong.

They know they could loose their jobs if they make the wrong decision,
So guess which side they come down on with such mighty precision?
No subpoenas, no inquiries though it’s obviously wrong,
We’re told to believe they’re isolated and don’t really belong.

Because truth is the stuff that politicians often evade,
Unless we have rules they have to obey and they’re slightly afraid,
And those who judge them should be completely independent,
That means, not appointed by him, not related or dependent.

Because we’re not allowed callback, set dates or referenda,
They just stick to their party status quo and their agenda,
And their media pumps their propaganda because it does,
No fear of the cops, the courts, appointed friends or the fuzz.
