Treasure Island

James Bredin

(1933 / Ennis Canada)


Nothing on the horizon for the Conservatives to loose sleep,
Could Justin, the drama teacher, make the establishment weep?
If he took up death-with-dignity and binding referendums now,
Could the electorate see the light and finally go wow?

Canadian Liberals under Justin could come back from the dead,
It’s in every paper, day and night, all weekend long, so I read,
If they come up with referendums or death-with-dignity first,
Could that reflect on the Conservatives as if we were cursed?

Or will referendums and DWD be another forgotten saga?
And our politicians continue to show that they’ve all gone gaga,
And the Ottawa establishment continue to rule forever,
And referendums and DWD will be a never never.

That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
