The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Should we forget
Should we forget
The drumbeat of Referendum Three can be heard,
In the distance even by us in the public herd,
And as it gets louder; what could it all mean?
Should we just forget about it and say itís obscene.
And just concentrate on what the Liberals say today,
Their envelopes full of money and we should all obey,
They will give us a tax break which will be great,
Therefore no need for changes or even debate.
Those guys who talk French, donít know what theyíre doing,
Donít even know weíre not allowed to be reviewing,
The status quo system has to stay because itís swell,
Or the Ottawa adscam guys will get mad as hell.
Concentrate on multiculturalism please,
Wall to wall bilingualism and down on your knees,
And thank the Ottawa adscam guys for being so kind.
And those extortionate taxes, we shouldnít mind.
And in this coming election you know how to vote,
Itís easy - just behave like a herd of goats,
And do what youíre told because adscam guys wouldnít lie,
They want to stick around and never say "Bye."
