Can Canadians Do It Oct 25th,2012 - Poem by James Bredin

CAN CANADIANS DO IT? Oct 25th,2012
BY
JAMES BREDIN

Where do we get politicians with their feet on the ground?
Who think Canadian and are not completely party bound.
Who think death with dignity and not the abortion clinic,
Politicians we can believe in and is not the usual cynic.




Because they're into human rights and Trudeau's constitution,
And no capital punishment, lethal-injection or execution,
Soft judges and parole boards that almost empty the jails,
Or any left-wing ideas, notions or rules that prevail.




And then it gets worse because media moguls think it's great,
Or a new drug-addict Insite free clinic without much debate,
Where judges are appointed from very secret lists,
Governor generals too so our new aristocrats persist.
