Canadian Appointed Senate... Nov 23rd,2013 - Poem by James Bredin


A combination of pompous appointees and scandals goleor,
Ottawa aristocrat senators behind the Red Chamber door,
There until they turn seventy five, if you can believe,
Therefore there’s no reason why any of them should feel peeved.

These isolated elites in Ottawa look down on us,
We are merely numbers who seldom vote and never kick up a fuss,
And these Senate aristocrats are always vastly overpaid,
Hang out with the upper class and probably have a maid.

One was entitled to an extra ninety thousand dollar cheque,
What did he do to get that much money; what the heck!
I would like to know where that ninety thousand cheque ended up,
Did some appointed senator get it and was it enough?
