Adscam and election 2004
Adscam inquiry will have to be forgotten,
You have to behave and not feel downright rotten,
Talk about something_ anything but Adscam,
No expression of excitement -- behave like a lamb.
Inquiry findings will be released in five years,
To point out the crooks and confirm our fears,
Crooked politicians and officials galore,
With hidden agenda inside the status quo.
But by then it’s too late which is just what they want,
Delay and delay and go along for the jaunt,
Be docile and quiet and stay like a lamb,
Direct to dictatorship like babes in a pram.
It’s water under the bridge and now they’ve all ducked,
Forget their secret and hidden code of conduct,
Forget their appointees high in the Supreme Court,
And Governor General’s itinerary report.
Could you believe they’re going to cut our taxes?
Sit tight, vote for them as explained in their faxes,
They’re going to improve Medicare for you and me,
But they said it before and there’s no guarantee.
