Change The Senate... Aug 30th,2013


Can we adapt and change the Senate in another direction?
Or would whoever pulls the strings, pull another objection?
Because if they could pass a death-with-dignity law; we’re in
Wouldn’t have to continue in our ongoing embarasment and chagrin.

And the adopted Senate could justify it’s existence,
Death-with-dignity finally passed because of our persistence,
We might finally celebrate the fact that they exist,
And they could then stay there forever; make changes and persist.

But somewhere in the background I can see a political hand,
Trying to ensure that death-with-dignity is banned,
And set-date elections and binding referendums all gone too,
It was just a thought I had about our Senate - long overdue.
