Injection Sites - Poem by James Bredin

They want supervised injection sites on just about every street,
Decisions of the Supreme Court may not be one bit discreet,
These judges dressed up like Santa Clause that gave us abortion clinics,
You have no option but to obey though you can be a cynic.

The mysterious militants want to legalize all drugs,
Most media might mention this with the occasional shrug,
Activists mention studies and twisted false statistics they like,
They claim to save the lives of addicts while the drug dealers’ sales spike.

These sites have been banned in many European cities and towns,
But in Vancouver they refuse while politicians go to ground,
We’re not allowed binding referendums while politicians hide,
So our Supreme Court may be a Dr Jekyll or Mr Hyde.
