Esplanadia (a song)


*with a reggae beat*

(Chorus)
Esplanadia
we border on the Androscoggin River
Esplanadia
we suffer from cirrhosis of the liver

Memere and Pepere were Acadian
they tried to teach us all Canadian
it was always an obvious decision
to live and die in Esplanadia

(repeat chorus)

The AWAP bimbos are furious
ev'ry little boy's leer is injurious
snapper 'n' snails & ex-wives' tales
we let leeching dogs lie in Esplanadia

(repeat chorus)

We used to make living in factory
lost it to NAFTA and global usury
now we do what we can
to satisfy tax man
& maintain our lives in Esplanadia

(repeat chorus)

Bridge:
enjoy our generosity
ethnocentric ferocity
enjoy our generosity
xenophobe ferocity
enjoy our generosity
don't pass on the cost to me

& je dit, 'ja-- yah-yah
ma vie est tres very hard
I don't want ja-- yah-yah
Jihadists in my backyard

(repeat chorus)

Somalis flooded from Georgia
& Tennessee but never from Africa
we've got enough lazy ass
from Connecticut & Mass.
Mayor sez 'no vacancy' in Esplanadia

(repeat chorus)

(last chorus)
Esplanadia
we border on the Androscoggin River
Esplanadia
our generosity does not always deliver
Esplanadia
we border on the Androscoggin River
Esplanadia
our hearts have been whittled down to a sliver.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
