The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - The Ontario Liberals, Indians and cops

The Ontario Liberals, Indians and cops


James Bredin

The headline in the Sun said McGinty knows nothing,
Attitude with the Indian problems was do-nothing,
Like a pompous politician he lied and lied some more,
On the government Queen’s Park Parliament floor.

But he is concerned about all police complaints,
From robbers and rapists who pretend they are saints,
And the Indians can occupy all the land that they like,
While Dalton McGinty plans a tremendous tax hike.

For Liberals, Socialists and Communists, this is great,
As they sit back and pretend that there’s no need for debate,
The Indians were given the land for fighting a war,
Most taken back since then and the Indians can’t ignore.

History and Indians and the war of eighteen twelve,
Was that real or some report that the Liberals shelved?
Write legislation about complaints against the cops,
No photo ops here for politicians who are flops.

Property rights were never listed in Trudeau’s Charter,
And there are no cops here willing to be a martyr,
Maybe just maybe if they ignore; it will go away,
Bring in that anti cop legislation without delay.
