James Bredin (1933 / Ennis Canada)
Appointed Canadıan Senate... Mar 24th,2013
What did the appointed senators do to get where they are now?
In this secret kiss-ass system; this information is not allowed,
That's why democracy is opposed by this appointed crew,
Therefore no death-with-dignity or referendums for you.
It doesn't matter what you think, or say or do; nothing will change,
Embedded Ottawa aristocrats do not think that this is strange,
It doesn't matter what journalists write or moguls allow,
The Ottawa establishment will stay where they are for now.
I'm sure they are busy at various meetings here and there,
Discussing important stuff and pretending that they care,
Then they submit their travel accounts to be paid by us,
And we are so submissive that nobody ever kicks up a fuss.
