Is This True


Our senators would be unemployed if we abolished that place,
Do we have the power to do that and would it be a disgrace?
Can someone name something good that the Senate might have done?
Why were they appointed till they’re seventy five - everyone?

Could our appointed Supreme Court, just refuse to let this happen?
And even write their high handed command in legal Latin?
And are we allowed to change the Constitution by ourselves?
Just remember, that they are all appointed aristocrats themselves.

We are talking extremely elite high handed blue-blood stuff,
Even if they were only appointed; that might be enough,
Is this something like Trudeau’s Charter except different?
Would the Queen have to sign it or is that relevant?

Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
