Spurious Sponsorship Programs
Do you remember the missing billion last year?
Money and 22 criminal charges disappear,
At HRDC Jane Steward and itís all forgotten,
Like Alfonso in Denmark - is there something rotten?
They claim this conspiracy was all for unity,
Canít talk and itís not larceny or lunacy,
Another inquiry with no subpoena power,
Like APEC - send out invitations and cower.
Or Somalia inquiry - completely shut down,
Liberals often use the power of the crown,
Did the rot and corruption go right to the top?
Is there a reason now for them to slow down or stop?
Dolling out dollars like water at Niagara Falls,
Bags of money for Quebec Liberals who might call,
And the program staffers are still keeping their jobs,
Wouldnít want to interfere with those inside mobs.
I hear the paper trail was shredded long ago,
By mysterious insiders - unknown so-and-sos
No worry; Canadians will vote them back in,
Accustomed to political crookedness and sin.
