Binding Referendums... Mar 27th,2013 - Poem by James Bredin

James Bredin

Canadian binding referendums are completely forbidden,
Our party politicians don't want to be overridden,
By the people in our so called democracy without tools,
Where we don't have any compulsory voting rules.

If politicians play their cards right; they could get an appointment,
To a cushy job in the Senate and never again have a disappointment,
Where death-with-dignity is not allowed or even mentioned,
Because of the possibility it might cause some tension.

Several years ago, they told Sue Rodriguez that she had to die,
With Lou Gehrig's disease with pain and I will never know why,
We don't even have proportional representation,
Which causes an untold amount of political frustration.
