Poetry Break :Ontario Carries On Snitching Tradition Of Stalin and Hitler for “The Good of the Cause”

For the Good of The Cause

So abhorrent you were taught about Hitler and Stalin snitches
sending to execution so many innocents simply they had made enemies of their neighbours
yet in Toronto call 311 and report “offenders” simply because you or they pissed each other off
you call the snitch line and the COVID Secret Service is dispatched to your door within minutes
you are snitched not for the good of the cause but driven by their petty hatred and jealously
applauded by politicians as the right thing to do
yet for Hitler and Stalin an atrocious crime
but somehow for “democratically elected”
slimy ratting seems “the right thing to do”

What happened to democracy?
you filthy low life political rats
permitting totalitarian terrorism
for the good of the cause
so when are the show trials and executions happening
or perhaps they will be postponed to your never to be re- elected campaigns
more likely where you belong in the gutter

But terrified and brainwashed citizenry will say you were doing your job
as an elected two timing hypocrite lapping up out totalitarianism
no better than black booted storm troopers
marching for the good of the cause
you have the media behind you groaning with delight in their vaccination orgasm
best simply to extend the “temporary state of emergency”
forever and forever
