The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Must we be Kept in the Dark?
Must we be Kept in the Dark?
Wrapped it in the flag even though it was all in vain,
Way to pay for a Liberal election campaign,
And then you say, you saved the country several times,
Who will be left holding the bag for these adscam crimes?
The Liberal list of scandals goes on and on and on,
From Somalia to Shawinigan - and all withdrawn,
From HRDC to Krever to the gun registry mess,
And at the sponsorship scandal they seldom confess.
And adscam will trigger not just an election,
It will put Quebec referendum three into selection,
And once again we’ll be observers looking on,
Denied referendums in what could be our swan song.
What Quebec referendum number two, didn’t do,
The Gomery Inquiry will do it all in lieu,
What adscam ransom and equalization couldn’t buy,
The domino effect on their house of cards might make them cry.
It doesn’t take a prophet to foresee oncoming events,
Stuck in unilingual status quo awaiting supplements,
Will we ever be allowed to vote for our prime minister?
Must we be kept in the dark on these proceedings sinister?
