Be a Liberal Volunteer
There’s a rumor going around, they’re looking for volunteers,
To work for the Liberals and maybe make it a career,
To deliver unmarked envelopes to folk who are unnamed,
And never talk or feel in the least bit guilty or ashamed.
You should be bilingual, multicultural and half blind,
And leave all common sense and decency far behind,
Disregard, dithering, nepotism and patronage galore,
Conspiracies, cronyism, incompetence and much more.
And don’t worry; the fix is in; you can never go to jail,
There’s that divine right of kings and you never need to get bail,
Just show your membership card and they will be so impressed,
They’ll do anything, vote for anyone at your request.
