CHANGE CANADIAN CONSTITUTION… Mar 2nd 2013
We definitely need another constitutional debate,
Rewrite Trudeau's Charter and this time get it right and get it straight,
Set-date elections and proroguing parliament issues up front,
Despite that some activists will look at this as an affront.
Death-with-dignity and binding referendums in print,
Recall of lazy politicians who just look and squint,
Judicial reviews because some judges think they are up near god,
Remember Sue Rodriguez and you might get only a few nods.
Supreme Court and parole boards should all be elected,
Canadians should be compelled to vote in general elections,
And those who don't get fined on their next tax return,
This poem is just a small show of Canadian concern.
