The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - They give our money away
They give our money away
The big news today is a cabinet meeting,
Where they will sit and discuss the proper seating,
And how to tax and spend and travel some more,
And keep most of the people from knowing the score.
You won’t read many of these details in the news,
They’re not completely stupid so give them their dues,
Their secret negotiations will remain hidden,
Where your access to details is strictly forbidden.
They’re giving a trillion to some Third World group,
Their socialist Liberal policies of poop,
Then they’re off to visit them with a planeload of friends,
For photo opportunities and setting trends.
This is the way it’s always done or didn’t you know?
Canadian politicians give away dough,
That’s why we’re taxed up to the eyes and the ears,
They want more to give away despite the arrears.
