He's going to cut seniors' drug benefits
Dear Dalton: Some say it’s not true; that you do have a clue,
And I’m inclined to believe them; that you may have one or two,
But they’re well hidden and you’re no ordinary Ottawa hick,
And you probably could win in a battle of wits with a brick.
And all those lies that you told to get elected could be true,
And you may even believe them yourself which would give us a clue,
That you’re really modeling your career on Chrétien or Trudeau,
By back to back lies, just like them, but maintain all the status quo.
Or maybe you learned everything you know from Mister Mulroney,
He who staked the Senate to pass the GST and tax every loonie,
But stick to your strategy and your legacy will come out,
And without a drug plan us loud-mouth seniors will have no doubt.
