The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Ottawa Politicians
Would they be so brazen as to tell us what to think?
Or forget about Adscam with a nod and a wink?
Is this their new human-rights religion on display?
Better than the Ten Commandments any old day.
Theyíll continue the inquiry after delays,
Little revealed about appointees or forays,
Money misdirected - just numbers in the books,
Will we get what we deserve from these elected crooks?
Their blatant propaganda pumped out in their papers?
Distracting the people away from their capers,
No accountability, referendums or such,
Canít recall these politicians, thank you very much.
Other things are far more important so they say,
Find yourself another job and youíll get more pay,
But donít bother the officials or what they arrange,
Their salaries, their pensions and any extra change.
They do things by order in council without fear,
Parliament only sits about three months a year,
Stick to the status quo is their only conclusion,
Adscam didnít happen; itís just your illusion.
