Where Have all the Loyalists Gone?
Canadians are or were loyalists in a sense,
But pompous politicians now tend to sit on the fence,
Afraid to alter the system since Trudeauís Charter,
Same-sex referendum is now a non-starter.
And donít you dare talk of callbacks or term restrictions,
Or possible adscam corruption and convictions,
Or the idea that politicians should somehow stay home,
And not eternal junkets between Cairo and Rome.
The most over taxed people in civilization,
Still a million refugees coming in desperation,
Where deportation seems to be completely forbidden,
Political manipulations always hidden.
Expecting good order, good government and peace,
And if held in detention, immediate release,
So patriotic loyalists have now long been stuck,
Like playing hockey where someone up stole the puck.
