Canadians Are Not Allowed - Poem by James Bredin

Can’t have propositions, referendums or judicial reviews,
We know about these because of nightly US TV news,
No proportional representation or mid term elections,
Because recall and set-date elections are forbidden selections.

But we have dead soldiers on the Highway of Heroes coming home,
From Afghanistan in black shiny hearses with lots of chrome,
From that expensive, pointless and endless conflict over there,
But it gets worse because pompous politicians don’t seem to care.

No plebiscites, euthanasia or death with dignity here,
Not even doctor assisted suicide so nothing to fear,
Because UN political correctness seems to rule the day,
That crowd that banned us from the Security Council by the way.
