Liberal Adscam Leadership Contenders
These leadership contenders will say anything for a vote,
Adscam Liberal oddballs with no ideas to promote,
Concessions here, concessions there and open the jail door,
Afghanistan is more important than dead guys by the score.
They say we don’t want capital punishment but they don’t know,
No free votes in parliament and how low can we go?
No binding referendum, no recall - we’re tied with their strings,
Their rule of democracy is their divine right of kings.
We’re getting good at going to funerals and no one asks why,
Young men go off to Afghanistan and get blown up and die,
And the UN runs Ottawa and Ottawa runs us,
And Liberal leadership contenders say that this is a plus.
According to a new poll some politicians should be in jail,
Ninety five percent of those polled said this without fail.
Appealing to common sense might be a suggestion,
But in Ottawa or the UN this is out of the question.
