Ben Laden




James Bredin


Dear Osama: you've been in hiding far too long,

And I hear that your health may not be all that strong,

I hear your problems could be quite grave,

-- Four wives, twenty three kids hiding in a cave.


It could be damp in there with bugs, bats, rats, and mice,

Will you be on TV while they search your hair for lice?

I hear youre still defiant in your hidey hole?

Will you, like Saddam, throw up your hands and roll?


That's okay Benny Boy -- that's if you're still alive,

Heard about your video tape, guess you're not on side,

Can you make it to Canada and claim Charter Rights?

There's thousands like you on the incoming flights.


Our politicians refused to go to Iraq,

Went to Afghanistan with that UN pack,

With helicopters that sometimes fall out of the sky,

And these Liberal crusaders would never lie.


I hear you don't like democracy one little bit,

You'd love it in Ottawa -- you're a perfect fit,

No referendums or recall -- stuff like that,

Equalization instead of impeachment down pat.

Kyoto Agreement Maybe




James Bredin



They want megatonne reduction of greenhouse gas in eight years,

For fretful fear of climate change that's coming our way, my dears,

They want us to join their lofty vision of control and behave,

Or we too might get cooked by the weather and end up in a grave.


It's a UN thing therefore the special-interest all agree,

And we're supposed to fall in line because they're always right you see,

The Americans, Russians, Indians and Chinese are not dumb,

They'll reduce by nothing -- not by even one single megatonne.


Canada is still bound to reduce emissions by twenty twelve,

Or our left wing UN buddies might just put us on the shelve,

But there is one tiny light at the end of this dark closed tunnel,

Wind turbines instead of nuclear stuff remember --  Chernobyl.



Environmentalists in heaven with all their special-interest friends,

It's the fashion, it's the style, it's the craze and it's the trends,

Canada of course signed on in March nineteen ninety four,

India and China not there because they know the score.
