The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Toronto Tantrums
Why is Toronto cursed with politicians from hell?
We have not had a decent one since Lastman Mel,
Why are our extortionate taxes climbing towards the sky?
Why can’t we recall them instead of just asking why?
They take a stand on every left-wing issue and cause,
Can’t have a bridge to the island just because,
And no transportation to the airport so walk,
As their little communist committees sit and talk.
They’re going to tear down Regent Park and build it again,
Call it a different name so this is a win win,
‘Cause when they change the ghetto name, the stigma is gone,
They’ll tax, travel, spend, double their wages again and yawn.
And they cannot be recalled so they’re there for life,
With socialist cult followers like an obedient wife,
As the city heads towards bankruptcy and we wonder why,
Blame the feds for all their socialist pies in the sky.
