CANADIAN CHARTER REVIEW... NOV 9TH,2013


CANADIAN CHARTER REVIEW... NOV 9TH,2013
BY
JAMES BREDIN

We need an updated Constitution with a few more additions,
In order to circumvent future scandals and improve our conditions,
We need propositions, referendums and judicial reviews,
Canadian citizens should have a Charter right to choose.

We should have plebiscites and proportional representation,
In order to have proper democracy in our great nation,
We should have sealed selected election dates written down,
More than an aristocrat nodding his/her head in Ottawa town.

Our establishment will look at this list with utter dismay,
While sitting down and figuring out a strategy of delay delay,
While media moguls have addendas where scandals can help,
Where we may have to go on the Internet and yelp.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
