Canadian School of Political Expediency
The ethics councilor's job is not up for grabs,
He stays because he knows how they cover their tabs,
In case they have conflict of interest or concern,
To keep them out of jail so inquiries can't discern.
What the appointed ethics guy says is law,
Appointed RCMP commissioner sees no flaw,
Surely not Shawinigan again - the Shipping fleet,
Are Liberals innocent or lying through their teeth?
Canadians will have an election. whenever,
The PM will decide and then again he may. never,
He himself was chosen by faithful Liberal friends,
They're all left wing guys who know what gives and who lends.
And Canadians are not allowed to wonder why,
We have soldiers half way round the world who sometimes die,
Not because Canada is in any danger,
But politicians don't want to be put in UN manger.
Even now they want to cut still more on defense,
Except they're there to keep up the UN pretence,
As they try to hide all their clowning around,
Decisions that were made by a clutch of Chretien's clowns.
