Crazy to go to Africa
They want us involved in what they call failed states,
Wishy-washy UN mandate with little debates,
Plus their international socialist agenda,
Pompous Canadian political propaganda.
White Christian soldiers in black African Islamic lands,
Are we so crazy or dumb we canít quite understand?
Far away places with names we canít even pronounce,
Have tribal and religious wars, they donít even announce.
They want us all involved right up to our scrawny necks,
Weíll show them whose boss and how to show more respect,
And though they want us to change things so far a field,
Theyíve no appetite at home where the status quo is sealed.
Canít change the constitution, the senate or Charter,
Asking appointed judges questions is a nonstarter,
But please pay attention because theyíre holier than thou,
Get ready to go to Africa as soon as they allow.
