The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - The Liberal Ten-Year Plan
The Liberal Ten-Year Plan
As Liberals we have another ten-year plan,
And we’ll do it if we can pull off one more Adscam,
But we’ll have to remain in power that long,
Forget the missing billions ‘cause nothing went wrong.
‘Cause those scandals were not about money you see,
And we didn’t realize that you might not agree
And no one can point a finger directly at us,
There’s nothing on paper so why the big fuss?
We’re the good guys now and don’t be so confused,
None of us Liberals have ever been accused,
Please don’t do anything to shake the status quo,
We never lie despite our Red Book ethics though.
Honesty is the name of the Liberal game,
‘Cause in government we never take the blame,
Those missing millions and billions just disappeared,
Other people did it and our good name got smeared.
We won’t increase your taxes and we promise you that,
Not like Liberal McGinty who has it down pat,
You get democracy once every five years,
Without referendums or callbacks you have no fears.
