Rookie (1933 / Ennis Canada)



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.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
