The Winds Blow O’er Ontario

´Twas the day ‘fore democracy disappeared from our town;
Wind turbine salesmen were running around
With cheques in their pockets and greed in their eyes,
With hopes that the farmers would believe their slick lies.

After dumping big bucks into Liberal coffers,
Wind companies waited for huge payback offers
To put up the turbines on plains and on hills
And pass them off as efficient windmills.

They’ve done their own research; it works better that way,
Since government’s too stargazed to check what they say.
They’ve grabbed what they could while the gettin’ was good
And then “poof – disappeared!” from this neighbourhood.

Dalton’s throwing them money with his plan, oh so fine.
Just sell them your soul and sign on the line.
They’ve taken your land by the rights of refusal.
You gave up your say.  Yes, you’ve been bamboozled!

Once the turbines are up and you start to feel ills,
Just call the complaints line at MOE Spills.
They’ll pretend like they’re listening and write down every word.
Wind Turbine Syndrome, you say?  How absurd!!!
 
For those who complain, their ears will be closed –
They don’t pay attention to the people they’ve hosed.
Turbines have side effects?  Now how could that be?
It’s our retirement plan and wind energy’s “free!”
 
They’ll shut down those coal plants and make it all clean.
They’re out painting Ontario with green, Green, GREEN, GREEN!
But that’s the colour of money and it’s surely corrupt;
Has anyone noticed the new gas plant going up?

Of course, that’s the backup plan for when wind doesn’t blow.
They cherry-picked their research, which just goes to show;
It’s not sustainable energy or near green as they say.
Not a problem for them, though, ‘cause it’s us that will pay.

But the people are rising to protect this great land!
They’re gathering in droves to oppose the sly plan.
It happens to be that not all people were bought –
Ontarians are much smarter than the Liberals thought!

Now Dalton and Smitherman and Gerretsen, too,
Liberal MPPs and the rest of your crew,
As you sit back with a smirk thinking you’ve won the battle
Having sent the townsfolk up the creek with no paddle –

We’re gaining momentum – we’ll defeat you, no less!
And one thing’s for sure – WE WON’T TAKE YOUR B.S.
At the end of the day when you think it’s all done,
Just don’t forget where your paycheques come from!
