The Lean Jean Lousy Legacy
Jean: I hear you had another caucus meeting with friends,
You want to stay as prime minister and buck all the trends,
They say that your shelf life has expired and long gone,
And you are now irrelevant and you just donít belong.
I hear you read reports with no interest in what they said,
Want to push some of your lousy legislation instead,
And democracy as far as you are concerned is dead,
You donít understand that your opposition is widespread.
They insulted you and said the emperor had no clothes,
And you threatened another snap election just to teach those,
And then they laughed even louder and the meeting froze,
Paul Martin had a meeting too and his influence grows.
