Whose land is it anyway?
Farmers you see have no rights in or on or near their land,
A Canadian Charter phenomenon some say is grand,
Farms without property rights will now be green belt,
Farmers finally realize the hand that theyíve been dealt.
The Chretien/Trudeau Charter is from 1982,
Written for refugees and not farmers but who knew?
But politicians knew exactly what they were doing,
Appointee judge-made-laws so farmers get the screwing.
Their Charter was written for "Everyone" in creation,
Ben Laden, rogue refugees from developing nation,
Farmers donít count in this grand UN international deal,
Socialists draw lines on the map so land they can steal.
Farmers got in their tractors and drove to Queenís Park,
Politicians shook their heads and made no remark,
This is the result of the so called Charter of Rights,
You could loose your land under the northern lights.
Desperate farmers donít count in the greater scheme of things,
Nor did they count under Stalin or those near Beijing,
Itís the international socialist policies that count,
They say our farmers should take all this into account.
