HOW HELPLESS ARE WE? …NOV 12TH,2013
Canadians have the assumption that we got it right,
Tax-and-spend politicians can’t be questioned because we’re polite,
Less than half of us bother to vote and no one seems to care,
And the other half seems barely aware and nothing will change in this affair.
And without real set-date elections, the future is not well known,
Where proportional representation might be discussed with a groan,
Where governor general and Supreme Court judges are hand picked,
And senators too; secretly appointed though there could be a conflict.
Why are we so reluctant to vote or to change things around?
Denied death with dignity or the Supreme Court could clamp down,
Where do we get the leadership that will change the constitution?
With all these ongoing scandals, we need some evolution.
