Toronto Political Pay Problems
Who said they doubled their pay one day at lunch time?
Toronto City Council tribe at the trough all in a line,
While the poor people were taxed to the max up to their eyes,
Politicians increased the debt and invented more lies.
Their commissioned appointees were told what to promote,
No referendums, no recall - only councilors had a vote,
And afterwards they smiled and joked with so much glee,
Blatantly drained the treasury to become rich bourgeoisie.
While the City of Toronto went deeper in debt,
The mayor and his minions said this was no sweat,
They say there might be another garbage crisis soon,
Or maybe the Toronto Transit by the next new moon.
While the people of Toronto were trapped in a grid lock route,
Their conspiratorial politicians didnít give a hoot,
Nothing would change except the politicians pay,
Left wing socialists helping street people and the gay.
Incinerators canít happen because they might make smoke,
Plus left-wing environmentalists consider this a joke,
Our garbage goes to Michigan every day and night,
Pay the Americans but theyíre all so polite.
