EVERY LIBRARY HAS A CONNECTION... SEPT 15TH,2013


I can’t believe that we have so many unknown appointees,
Lots of stuff going on behind our backs that we can’t see,
This huge Senate full of appointees, we never heard of or know,
And when we do have an election, less than half of us go.


That’s an election for politicians - not Senate appointees,
Australia has compulsory voting but Canadians would be displeased,
Those of us who refuse to vote should be taxed ten dollars more,
That will cause us to wakeup; go and we’ll then know the score.


But of course the establishment want you to stay away,
Why bother to get involved or even vote, though they never say,
While death-with-dignity is banned and strictly forbidden,
Issues because they are never discussed are therefore well hidden.


And all federal elections should be had at once to proclaim,
Governor generals, prime ministers and senators by name,
Fellow Canadians wake up; the Internet has arrived,
Every library has a keyboard connection supervised.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
