Watergate and Adscam Hearings
The Adscam hearings are like Watergate except in name,
And the country is Canada so not quite the same,
But the political dreamers and schemers are right there,
With bureaucrats and henchmen on a wing and a prayer.
With money laundering types running the nation,
Money to corporations returned as donations,
Billions of dollars missing and itís just another day,
These are small numbers in the heady games that they play.
Referendum ransom paid to the province of Quebec.
Plus eight billion in equalization if you care to check,
Buy and placate separatists in the name of unity,
Then follow the hidden agenda with impunity.
With same-sex stuff in the air, Adscam maybe gets page six,
Public attention has been diverted and weíre transfixed,
Without referendums or recall we donít have a chance,
Five minutes every five years and half us vote in a trance.
Will Adscam fade away and will anything ever change?
Isolated in their Ottawa bubble mighty strange,
Where their high appointees protect them forever more,
Where everyone who is anyone knows the score.
