HOW DO WE GET IT RIGHT? Mar 25th,2011

We don’t have referendums, plebiscites or mid term elections,
No propositions or proportional representation selections,
I think its time that maybe someone somewhere should complain,
Maybe set-date elections would help with this awful pain.



We have no death penalty so therefore we don’t need a death row,
Can’t get on the UN Security Council in case you don’t know,
Convicted of killing ten people but may apply for parole,
Is this an indication that we might have lost control?



We have no death penalty but many at the UN do,
We’re bound to be politically correct and can’t misconstrue,
You might wonder, who’s running this outfit, and for sure it aint you,
We need proportional representation and a new review.
