CANADIAN SENATE... FEB 15TH,2013


CANADIAN SENATE … FEB 15TH,2013
BY
JAMES BREDIN


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.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
