AND YOU DIDN'T EVEN KNOW... JULY 31ST,2013


Our appointed fat senators seem to be above the law,
Where scandals are looked at, as not real but maybe a flaw,
And changes to the system are forbidden so we have to tolerate,
Old appointees until they are 75 and how they operate.





In an area where death-with-dignity is forbidden,
Therefore any talk about this, has to be secretly hidden,
Behind closed doors at quiet orderly committee meetings,
Lengthy pretentious discussions about this and that and no peeking.





We haven’t had a Tommy Douglas for many many years,
This is far more mysterious than it at first appears,
Because he was a great politician and not afraid of change,
In light of modern events - why should that be so strange?

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
