Have We Gone Mentally Ill?
Canít be asked if they are gay or fascist activists
Canít be asked about fierce feminist abortionists,
Nothing will be debated or questioned or asked,
In the shrouded secret world where all appointments are masked.
You canít have an independent thought that you might regret,
A status quo politician might think of you as a threat,
Transparency and accountability is not debated,
The media will keep the public semi sedated.
The weekly political scandal has just arrived,
Taxpayers just discovered again that theyíve been deprived,
And theyíre going to enforce and impose same-sex stuff soon,
Teach it in the schools by tomorrow or Friday afternoon.
These crazy decisions that come down from up above,
You are forbidden to be disgusted so just think of love,
And if the country is not completely mentally ill,
If you too stick around long enough, you too certainly will.
And referendums and recall have been forever banned,
Except in Quebec where they have a Francophonie band,
And soon they are going to have Referendum Three,
To flee from Ottawa mad bourgeoisie that they see.
