APPOINTED FRIENDS ... MAR 9TH,2013


APPOINTED FRIENDS ... MAR 9TH,2013
BY
JAMES BREDIN

The Canadian Senate is full to the doors with appointees,
Cushy jobs till they are seventy five and they don't have to appease,
Canadians don't know why they were appointed or why they exist,
Maybe like Supreme Court judges - from a very secret list.





A pompous establishment hidden in Ottawa up there,
Elite aristocrats we can't question and wouldn't dare,
But real democracies don't have this type of establishment,
Where secret appointees are accepted in secret management.





It's a graphic illustration that there is something very wrong,
And Canadians should seek to change the system and get along,
There has to be a better way; where the elites are all elected,
Not kissing ass in Ottawa in order to get connected.
