Canadian Political Problems... Feb 1st,2013 - Poem by James Bredin


Canadian binding referendums are completely forbidden,
Our party politicians don't want to be overridden,
Just like death-with-dignity - we're going absolutely nowhere,
It seems we're trapped in this and their political affairs.

And we are also denied proportional representation,
Then add death-with-dignity and probably damnation,
And there's no need to vote so less than half Canadians do,
Ottawa elites busy at meetings, they have to attend to.

If you try for assisted suicide; it's a Sue-Rodriguez reply,
You can go to Switzerland, pay the big bucks, if you want to die,
But Pauline, they say, might get it for folk in Quebec,
Good for Pauline - the best Canadian politician yet.
