Dear Dalton -- 8
Dear Dalton: Did you recently say you would not raise taxes?
And now that you’re elected do you ever answer your faxes?
I wanted to ask about that senior’s drug plan you stopped,
Do you think they’d vote for you again as their health dropped?
Do you think we should have proportional representation?
To help us with politicians like you in our frustration?
Dear Dalton as you know most of us near-nerds just follow along,
While you make those weighty decisions at Queen’s Park that are all wrong.
We don’t even have an option while you destroy this great province,
We shake our heads and look mesmerized at your incompetence,
Without recall, binding referendums or impeachment we’re lost,
And no one knows, not even you, what all this will eventually cost.
Whenever I think you can’t make another mistake, you do,
And each and every time I believe you don’t have even one clue,
I have no doubt that you are the most dangerous nerd about,
And like every crackpot you believe you’re absolutely devout.
