Canadian Political System
Canada has no control of its crooked politicians,
No need to reveal their background complaining about conditions,
And then they go to Ottawa and completely disappear,
In an anonymous committee where they pretend they’re sincere.
And if that’s not bad enough, they can’t be fired or recalled,
Whether they’re mentally ill, drunk, berserk or gone completely sprawled,
We have no referendums or term limit restrictions,
They may stay forever and never reveal their convictions.
They get elected by propaganda from socialist schemes,
They never for one minute mention their communist dreams,
And if or when they finally get kicked or voted out the door,
They get a going-away package - just another score.
