James Bredin (1933 / Ennis Canada)
CANADIANS DON'T HAVE TO THINK... APRIL 29TH,2013
Don’t bother to think because we should really be ashamed,
No binding referendums and youthful offenders can’t be named,
With no death penalty or death-with-dignity and we don’t have to vote,
But we do have pompous left-wing media moguls who gloat.
No judicial reviews, plebiscites or set-date elections,
No political recall so we can’t make late obvious corrections,
No elected senators or elected Supreme Court judges,
Illegal refugees claim Charter rights and may have grudges.
But we do have an unknown number of unborn baby abortions,
A Canadian baby holocaust out of all proportions,
Allowed by High Court judges - picked from a very secret list,
They must be aristocrats because you and I can’t enlist.
