Canadian Pravda newspapers
We have newspapers that could put Pravda to shame,
Wall to wall Liberal propaganda except in name,
Pravda was the official communist paper,
Before the Soviet Union vanished like vapour.
Everything was written according to the party line,
Every day and night - year in year out -- all the time,
They trained their communes and people how and what to think,
Totalitarianism with a nudge, gun and a wink.
Politically correct religion of the day,
Special interest columns and constant twisted essays,
Parade parachuted candidates from somewhere,
Scandals barely mentioned which we know is unfair.
They print and pump their programs and policies,
Almost in line with socialist communist prophecies,
While they slash and twist the Conservative stand,
Sanctimoniously pretend that this was not planned.
