JUSTIN'S TSUNAMI... APRIL 9TH,2013


Is there a Liberal tsunami coming our way from somewhere?
With Justin riding the big wave and Conservatives don’t care?
Because they are entrenched and they are now the establishment,
But they should heed Justin’s Liberal accomplishments.




Because Justin is coming over the hill with Liberal splendor,
Has he said anything remarkable lately that you can remember?
What will he change in our so-called Ottawa democracy?
Is this another illusion or more Liberal hypocrisy?



Without death-with-dignity or binding referendums,
But we can’t vote for a PM by name or memorandum,
And you can’t elect a senator or governor general but who knew?
And without compulsory voting but there’s no reason to feel blue.




Could Justin mention these flaws or is he one of them too?
Already part of the Ottawa establishment but again; who knew?
If he could say something; anything that he might change,
Justin: think binding referendums and DWD and we’ll arrange.

Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
