Ottawa Politicians Forever


James Bredin

Ottawa Liberals in lock step with one another?
Letting refugee rogues in as if they were brothers,
Canít interfere with their international socialist cause,
Or question their appointees or point out these flaws.

Or talk back to the CBC as they tell us theyíre great,
No need for referendums or serious debates,
While those with vested interests get special reviews,
If you donít have a special interest, they just refuse.

So the people themselves are almost forgotten,
Not even allowed to realize this could be rotten,
But if youíre multicultural, bisexual or gay,
You might fit in with the Liberals right away.

Their status quo is stable so we stay where we are,
Though High Court decisions may be completely bizarre,
Judicial dictatorship as we bow our heads in shame,
As they change all the laws and thereís no one to blame.

Because we canít change the system -- weíre not allowed,
Wishy-washy politicians who talk out through a cloud,
No term limits -- they might stay forever and a day,
Doing nothing important but drawing their huge pay
