CANADIAN SENATE … FEB 15TH,2013
Our Canadian Senate stuck us with Mulroney's GST,
Senators not elected seem to be lazy appointees,
Something is wrong that apparently can't be made right,
But the Americans can vote for their senators to their delight.
Canadian appointees can stay till they are seventy-five,
Nobody knows for sure what they do except maybe connive,
So the prime minister should be told to appoint no more,
It will be empty when the last senator goes out the door.
And this way, we don't have to abolish their useless Senate place,
And those who get excited or worked up, can be told right to their face,
The place is empty because no one can remember what they did,
And we the people recognize that it was secret and sordid.
