Lately, us lucky Canadians have been treated to some wonderful advertising campaigns by our elected politicians as we head to the polls (YET AGAIN!) on May 2nd. I’ve been trying to make sense enough of it all to attempt an educated and “wise” decision, but have to admit, the thought of doing NOTHING is tempting. I know having the right to vote is amazing, and I truly appreciate it, but I mean, really…we are trying to run a country, not a playground! Forgive me as I rant poetically, and feel free to share your thoughts too!
The battle cry of those forsaken
Rings throughout the morning air
Crushing the calming sunrise
With pomegranate tears
Bleeding a river of rebellion
Refusing to be bought
As the budgets they plan
Play out on prime time TV
Robbing Stephen to buy off Michael
Duct taping the mouth of Jack
While the Bloc runs on the steam of its own agenda
And poor Elizabeth didn’t stand a chance,
Shunned by the media puppeteers
For having too much to say.
The battle cries of the forsaken
Will make their presence known
In advance polls and secret ballots
Paid for with our children’s future
As 200 teachers get their asses kicked to the curb
Christ knows we’re not interested in making anymore babies!?
