A BINGO HALL... FEB 21TH,2014


A BINGO HALL … FEB 21TH,2014
BY
JAMES BREDIN

The Ottawa elites have 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 their 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 had fingers pointed here and over there,
Remarks made about funds paid and no one seems to know where.


And those Senate scandals seem to have been an ongoing affair,
By appointees who were there till they were 75 and didn’t care,
We should have closed the place down and turn it into a bingo hall,
A suggestion which the many appointees would try to stall.
