The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Political Donations to Quebec

Political Donations to Quebec


James Bredin

Ottawa politicians seem to love Quebec,
No qualms about signing a billion-dollar check,
Ontario and the others can just rub salt,
All political problems are just their fault.

Ontario referendum for separation,
To get to hell out of this confederation,
‘Cause if Quebec can do it and get all that money,
Ontario could get checks too - not very funny.

Should I apologize for these terrible thoughts?
Or not dwell on Shawinigan-Ottawa defaults,
Should I just go along for the Liberal ride?
Do nothing, say nothing and let it all slide.

Or can they spin their way out of this scandal?
Find their way in the dark with dimly lit candle?
The Somalia Inquiry -- they closed it down,
Quietly one afternoon in the name of the crown.

‘Cause the Liberals themselves would never steal,
Though they funnel taxpayers’ money to whom they deal,
Like in their Charter where equality is in,
But Liberals are more equal and allowed to sin.
