An Elected Canadıan Senate Poem by James Bredin


We can’t change the appointed Senate and why is that so strange?
Because the Ottawa elites don’t want anything rearranged,
They got the appointments until they are seventy five,
If the Senate is changed or closed down; they will feel deprived.

And we can’t change Trudeau’s Charter of Rights for unknown reasons,
Because it was simply imposed by Trudeau and his patrons,
We should put assisted suicide in his Charter if we can,
No doubt the Ottawa elites would have this idea banned.

Because Canadians don’t do anything that might rock the boat,
Add that to the fact that less than half of us bother to vote,
An elected Senate, death-with-dignity and what else?
Maybe we should just shut up and pray and tighten our belts.
