Quebec Referendum Three
Our politicians try to stress that this is make believe,
They want to maintain their status quo and continue to deceive,
Buy the vote and pay equalization ransom to Quebec,
All revealed at the Adscam Inquiry if you check.
After Quebec’s Referendum Three, what will come to pass?
Will Ottawa stress their authority again or just collapse?
Could the taxes Quebec sends to Ottawa be withdrawn?
The mere idea of a province refusing to fawn.
Will Quebec remain a province or make an independent deal?
Will Ottawa pay attention or continue to conceal?
Could other provinces conclude that they should get the same?
Finally fix the constitution and avoid laying blame.
Could Quebec Referendum Three finally break their mould?
People finally realize the hill of beans they’ve been sold?
Finally fix the constitution and this time get it right,
Referendums, recall, term limits, elected Senate in sight.
So should we encourage the Quebecois or tell them to stop?
Because this could be our only chance to constitution shop,
Instead of running around in extreme frustration,
Their Referendum Three should be a cause for celebration.
