THE DRUG ADDICTS WON... JULY 15TH,2013


The media moguls seem to have accepted the notion that the drug addicts won,
And we the people are once again being pushed by their con,
The drug dealers are happy to sell their illegal drugs nearby
How did this catering to the underworld, come about and why?

They’re claiming that the clinic in Vancouver was a success though,
So Toronto will have injection sites somewhere in town and you didn’t even know,
We may even have several, though referendums are always denied,
Democracy for the people in Toronto, is not being applied.

We could solve this problem by putting the drug addicts in jail,
It would no doubt interfere with what the drug dealers have for sale,
This whole problem could be compared to religion and which one you’re in?
The others are obviously not right and probably involved in sin.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
