Dear Dalton -- 7
Dear Dalton I hear that welfare fraud is in,
They can milk the system for life and win,
Then they’ll just go out and all vote for your crowd,
Or riot at Queen’s Park and scream quite loud.
‘Cause welfare cheats, it’s said, sure know how to vote,
And this is the crowd you know how to promote,
And maybe you can stay in office for ten years,
Without term limits but with volunteers.
I hear your conscience only works by selection,
Can’t count the lies you told before your election,
And that balanced budget you talked so much about,
They’re not concerned on welfare ‘cause they have no doubt,
I think I’ll go and apply for welfare now,
Grab a cab to the beer store - they know how,
The damage you can do that we can’t debate,
No referendums, recall or set elections by dates.
