James Bredin

(1933 / Ennis Canada)



Canadian senators’ attitude of entitlement is hard to believe,
Refuse to reimburse housing claims that went on for years,
It shows that we the people have a problem that’s very rough,
While our other politicians have now taken the summer off.

Appointees entitled to the Red Chamber till seventy five,
Got there because of connections or maybe they connive,
It’s obvious that appointed senators should be elected,
The mentality of their entitlements should be disconnected.

Some US states elect their judges and have assisted suicide.
But like Sue Rodriguez, we don’t and are compelled to comply,
But if Quebec is allowed assisted suicide; what will we do?
Is there something coming down the pipe, that is way overdue?

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
