COMPULSORY CANADIAN ELECTIONS... JULY 28TH,2013
Canadians don’t seem to like going to or voting at elections,
So less than half of us vote or are bothered with these selections,
And those who squeeze by and get elected want to keep it that way,
And those who want to change things tend to just stay away.
And those who get appointed to the Senate are made for life,
That added to a long list of entitlements should end their strife,
So there’s no need to make a noise or make any waves,
But there is no death with dignity when they put you in your grave.
So we need a Canadian compulsory voting law,
Not in ten years but now though this information may be raw,
That plus DWD and referendums would surely help,
Get us out of these prolonged scandals so we don’t have to yelp.
