A BINGO HALL... DEC 5TH,2013


A BINGO HALL … DEC 5TH,2013
BY
JAMES BREDIN

The Ottawa establishment has developed an attitude,
They are the establishment and they don’t need your gratitude,
And death-with-dignity is a provincial matter; so there!
And these many government scandals are not your affair.


Its hard to tell who did what and where and when and how much,
Ottawa aristocrat appointees are a complicated bunch,
A scandal a day with fingers pointed here and over there,
Remarks made about funds paid and no one seems to know where.


And this Senate scandal seems to be an ongoing affair,
By appointees who are there till they’re 75 and don’t care,
We should close the whole place down and turn it into a bingo hall,
A suggestion which the many appointees will try to stall.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
