DEMOCRACY OR WHAT...NOV 13TH,2013


DEMOCRACY OR WHAT? … NOV 13TH,2013
BY
JAMES BREDIN

Why does it seem; we should have more control of our politicians?
Because they act like elite aristocrats above suspicions,
Why are our senators appointed for life or seventy five?
How did they get there secretly and did they have to connive?


Where should I go to apply for this type of high class position?
I might be too old and stupid but I have lots of ambition,
Could our Senate handle our death-with-dignity trouble?
Because this is not going to disappear like a soap bubble.


Why do I get the opinion, they avoid this subject like the plague?
Or if they answer a question; it is extremely vague,
Is this democracy or dictatorship or should we have to ask?
No set-date elections, referendums and no one up to the task.

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
