CHANGE IN THE WIND... MAR 23RD,2013 Poem by James Bredin


Just another old Canadian looking around, waiting to die,
The schedule and the timing can't be arranged and we don't know why,
The appointed untouchable elites, laid down this law,
They did it to Sue Rodriguez - one Canadian legal flaw.

Ottawa aristocrats and elites never showed that they cared,
As far as they are concerned; this is not their affair
Not death-with-dignity or binding referendums anywhere,
And all the bureaucrats behave as if they were unaware.

And their obedient media moguls are all on side,
As they pump out elite propaganda like a religious guide,
Maybe Justin is our only chance for political change,
But he's not listening either and why is that not one bit strange?
