The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Paul: Remember Joe Clark
Paul: Remember Joe Clark
Paul: Remember Joe Clark during his short stay in power,
He too traveled the world and looked down from the peace tower,
Remember Kim Campbell and if you do, you’re the only one,
Her GST party disappeared and it wasn’t much fun.
You had your chance to change things but you were too busy,
Meeting tin pot dictators and they were all in a tizzy,
You and Joe Clark and Chretien all loved the United Nations,
You were absent half the time because of their invitations.
I hear you want to stiff us with Kyoto and some same-sex stuff,
And it will be taught in the schools to ensure we get enough,
And you want to stick around for at least another year,
To impose this same-sex stuff before the Liberals disappear.
And like your predecessor, you never touched the Charter,
Nor used the notwithstanding clause - no Liberal martyr,
No referendums, recall, term limits or set-date elections,
And Adscam shows us all the Liberal connections.
