A POET'S PLEA: WE NEED TO KNOW WHO SOLD THE FARM

RISE AND FALLS

Standing firm on guard for thee,
we coalesce to make our plea,
and while the horse has left the barn,
we need to know who sold the farm;

An enterprise whose smell pervades,
the waters and its everglades;
whose genesis just boggles minds,
while mares will watch their bare behinds;


Where was sense when pique prevailed,
impending storms but off she sailed;
did due diligence lose its way,
which brought us to this fatefull day?

Enquire, ye learned minds, of why,
the Muskrat ever got its bye;
of what its tail might yet reveal,
if all else fails, it's sex appeal.

  1. There was a province by the sea
    Whose leaders thought a dam should be
    When asked who would pay
    They replied I dare not say
    But we’ll levy a hefty and exorbitant fee

  2. Tom Osborne... just another in lamentably long line of incompetent NL politicians, the lot of which can best be described as a bunch of hopelessly naive con artists living in a technicolor dreamworld.

    He now appears to believe that by avoiding mention of the excessive provincial debt resulting from a hideously bloated government's horrendous spending problem... will serve to sucker the voters and soften them up for the coming election.

    At least from Cathy Bennett the public got straight talk, as grim as as it was... rather than the asinine blatherings of a partisan fool.

    This Osborne individual is lost... unfit to hold the finance portfolio.

    1. The reason and the only reason we are in this mess is because of Nalcor and their mega project nightmares.

    2. Cathy Bennett, wasn't she an acting chair of the bored of directors when Muskrat was given the go ahead or sanction as the oilies call it.

    5. Yes, that's exactly right... and Bennett partnered with Sunny Corners in NB, a company that did million$ in business with Nalcor.

      Then Bennett has the unmitigated gall to put up a poor mouth when she folded under the bullying on social media from her austerity budget... but it's difficult, very difficult indeed... to muster any sympathy for one who would conduct such parasitic business practices on the backs of taxpayers stuck with paying for a bloody boondoggle that one championed as it was greasing one's way to a return on one's investments... shameful.

      Hopefully the voters will not have forgotten these contemptible circumstances come election day.

    9. Big Macs .do you want the 1710 calorie with fries and coke, having 117 % of daily saturated + transfats, and 22 spoonfuls of sugar, and 90 % of daily salt intake?
