InjectıOn SıTes 9 - Poem by James Bredin

Rooms full of appointees making life and death decisions,
No binding referendums allowed and no revisions,
Abortion clinics on every street next to the injection sites,
While the activists claim that the drug addicts have Charter rights.

They tried to do the same thing in Europe and were completely banned,
Unfortunately Canadians don’t seem able to take a stand,
We seem to have lost control of these drug-addict injection sites,
Has some politician up in Ottawa turned out the lights?

This issue seems to have faded from the pages of the media,
Maybe they’re busy reading a left-wing encyclopedia,
Have we all gong mad as this is taking place right up front,
Where are our oddball Canadian politicians who should confront?
