Minority Canadian Government
An Ottawa pomp and circumstances throne speech,
A public make-believe embarrassment for us meek,
Didnít select her and canít get rid of him or him,
The Access Act hides when or if theyíre out on a limb.
Canít vote our prime minister in or out of his job,
He is selected by his own Liberal mob,
But you didnít know and no one told you so itís okay,
Please do not cause a disturbance or disobey.
Read the newspapers with pumped out propaganda,
Never think or make a comment about their agenda,
Weíve got the CBC, CRTC and they take care,
Add left wing politicians and we have a nightmare.
This mincing minority that wants to stay for ever,
Stuck in the status quo pretending to be clever,
Refuse referendums, recall or term restrictions,
Scared of proportional representation evictions.
Chosen senators, governor generals and judges,
And the ethics guy too with secret nods and nudges,
But weíre the greatest in the world or so weíre told,
Stuck in the status quo deep in their Liberal mould.
