‘Twas the night before Election, twenty-nineteen;
The ugliest one this country has seen
With fake news abundant, offside ads online
And an incumbent who dressed in blackface,.. how many times?
The main challenger has a troubling past too
Including a hidden American citizenship? Ew!
Lies have been spread, fake “facts”relayed
It got more American every day
When it came to debates, there arose such a clatter
That no one had time to say things that mattered
Except Mr. Singh’s “Mr. delay or Mr Deny”
He proved that he might just be worth a try
With progressive ideas and infinite grace
The question is, can he get a complete team in place?
The Green party is hopeful the voters “finally see us!”
But all their MP’s can still fit in a Prius
Then of course there is the Bloc Quebecois
The only province with a federal party, pourquoi?
And what is a twitter with this Maxime fella?
He’s almost as repulsive as Warren Kinsella
Oh how I wish we had one candidate
With an unblemished past and a clear mandate
Who could inspire and lead a strong, worthy team
Kinda like Santa, wouldn’t that be a dream?
But what we are left with, are the choices we’ve got
A few possible options, and a few that are NOT
I just hope you will vote, and exercise your right
For a Canada that can once again be merry… GOOD NIGHT!
