Election Blanche in Ward 19
Remember when the NDP
Was all about diversity?
Now I am ashamed to see
It’s all about heredity.
SUCH A PARCEL OF ROGUES T’WAS THAT ORGANIZATION!
Farewell to Ward 16 fame
Farewell our old glory
Farewell even to the name
So famed in municipal story
Now Stintz runs over the Official Plan
And Tall Buildings tower over the horizion
To mark where Miller’s province stands-
Such a parcel of rogues in an organization!
What force or guile could not subdue
Through many troubled stages
Is wrought now by an elected few
For parties, suits and speeches.
A councillor’s arrogance we disdained
Secure in honest condemnation;
But developer’s funds have been our bane-
Such a parcel of rogues in one organization!
If only we had seen the day
That blind ambition could sell us,
My cool head would remain
With Sewell and loyal Jacobs!
But with Mills in Ward 16, till the last hour
I will make this declaration :-
‘We were bought and sold for developer’s gold’-
T’WAS SUCH A PARCEL OF ROGUES IN THAT ORGANIZATION!
