The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Will we have to change soon?
Will we have to change soon?
If they riot and burn flags to get us on our knees,
And everyone bends backwards trying to appease,
And itís about cartoons and a flag with a cross,
And some strange message they are trying to get across.
With multicultural policies we had it made,
But then we looked in the mirror and saw we were afraid,
We begged forgiveness for being what we are,
Apologies came from politicians near and far.
Itís moral capitulation of our values now,
No more multicultural policies somehow,
Is polygamy is no longer a crime or a sin,
Will feminists wear a burka just to fit in?
And nobody will be allowed to step out of line,
Multicultural bureaucracy not needed this time,
Because Canadian culture will not exist,
Because terrorists with rights will persist and insist.
While people in gridlock, stuck in traffic entombed,
Listen to the radio about riots and doom,
Receive the message of our complete capitulation,
Told what to think and what to say for their salvation.
