and we say their names

we lay out the stories
for you to claim

and we say their names


we watch the speakers chatter
and we simply say   "where are the deliverables for the money that we pay?"

and we say their names


we wait for years
for the change that never comes   but the record is made


and we say their names


we watch the skies for storm clouds and rain
and we rein in the pain of decades of betrayal and shame


and we say their names

the new actors on the stage of politics and commerce
tell us that positive politics and change is here   the Liberals and the NDP are the same


and we say their names


we concentrate on the essentials  
we focus on democracy   for without the true partnership we have nothing


and we say their names
