CONSTITUTIONAL COMMITTEE June 15th,2011


We need a constitutional committee to submit new stuff,
To change the flaws in the Charter though this could be mighty rough,
To get death with dignity and binding referendums soon,
And not be tied down in a politically correct commune.

We need politicians with guts to say they have had enough,
No more being party submissive – they have to get tough,
Proportional representation would do for a start,
Elected Supreme Court and Senators and no more bleeding hearts.

Where abortion clinics can be put to a national vote,
Not given to the Supreme Court and then put on remote,
We need some politician to come forward and talk about this,
Because this is our one chance to get changes like the Swiss.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
