Canadian Appointed Senate - Poem by James Bredin
It’s not our appointed Senate that is at fault; it’s us,
We have allowed their delusions of grandeur without a fuss,
And less than half of us bother to vote in any election,
All these little details may indeed have a connection.
There is no doubt about it but Canada needs to change,
Unfortunately our appointed senators think this is strange,
Conspiracies of cushy jobs untill they are seventy five,
You only have to sit back in a nice soft red chair and thrive.
Elite travelling aristocrats seldom if ever seen,
It’s said that some might be fidling with numbers which could be obscene,
Canadians should have a binding referendum once a year,
Compulsory attendence of a five dollar fine; is that clear?
