Jack Laytons Dream



When Layton died

The nation cried

In solidarity for a friend

Who so diplomatically and honourably

Put our country on the mend

His charisma and integrity

Touching us all

Until his noble end

We’ll miss you Jack,

Perhaps even more than Trudeau –

For telling us all

That united we can

Tell the Tories where to go

He never complained

But only thought compromise

You could see the honesty

Shining through his angelic blue eyes

Jack Layton was never a back stabbing traitor

Like Peter McKay

Who screwed David Orchard’s

Organic play

So vote NDP or Green

And expect to be touched

By Jack Layton’s dream.
