Are Refugees Nice Guys?
Canada has decided not to follow US leads,
Fingerprint and photograph all incoming refugees,
Or terrorists or Ben Laden if he comes,
Or claims his Charter rights with international bums.
Canadians canít ask questions because of who they are,
Partisan appointees will decide in this weird bazaar,
Itís UN policies that are now the Holy Grail,
Is it their rules and regulations that will prevail?
The few who ask questions will be completely overruled,
Probably homophobic, xenophobic or unschooled,
Should they be burned at the stake for being a witch?
Or maybe tarred and feathered and thrown in a ditch?
Will we be allowed to watch all this approaching trouble?
Before international socialists burst their bubble?
Compelled to be completely politically correct?
Denied referendums or the ability to protest?
Theyíre waiting now for a million more about to arrive,
The do-gooders want amnesty so illegals can thrive,
And all this while Canadians themselves remain silent,
Hidden is the notion that refugees could turn violent.
