    In a land First Nations used to call The Great Mother Earth

    To the tune of ‘CLAUDE DALLAS’
    By Ian Tyson.

    In a land First Nations used to call,
    The Great Mother Earth,
    A storm came brewing from the east,
    It squandered all good will.

    It turned bad to good, n good to bad,
    Soiling family dads n motherhood.
    It swamped the poor with tax on tax
    And then called down the west.

    For many years social strife prevailed
    Wrought by special loves.
    Some were kept, as favoured ones,
    While many more indulged.

    Those who dared to breath the air
    Of decent, good and fair,
    Were shouted at and shouted down
    By lap dog toady thugs.

    By the time the gale had been corralled,
    The land was hard to see
    Obscured by discord, much distrust and deep disunity.

    Disunity, disunity.

    Those of us not from Canada may be scratching our heads on this one but it seems the principals have had the opportunity to talk to each other here. I think that's plenty for this thread.
