Injection Sites - Poem by James Bredin

They claim that mandatory drug sentences are too expensive,
And keeping criminal drug addicts in jail could be offensive,
And injection sites on all streets would be a much better way,
They despise the mandatory drug sentences used in the USA.

Their ability to fill pages in the media should be noted,
The fact that criminals buy stuff on the street is sugar coated,
With half the alphabet after their names to prove that they are right,
Are we a Canadian herd of sheep being led out of sight?

And they can hide behind the Access to Information Act,
While politicians slide and the dressed up Supreme Court detracts,
Activists use the phrase “Harm Reduction” to justify their cause.
While waiting for their followers and the media to applause.
