ISOLATED OTTAWA ARISTOCRATS... AUG 21ST,2013


The isolated Ottawa aristocrats are not here,
They’re far away up in Ottawa so we have nothing to fear,
Should we show them more respect despite all the scandals that we read?
Or should we lie low despite the audit and pay them no heed?




But that’s what they want and please, no checking - mounties involved,
And no need to have this audit or their travel expences solved,
But are these high aristocrats way above the law?
With senate titles until they are seventy five but is that a flaw?




Canada has this big problem that we are reluctant to admit,
It’s the hundreds of appointed senators that never have to quit,
And no one seems to know how to fix the Constitution,
Can’t be done, they say, and it might cause pollution.

THE CHANCELLOR mused as he nibbled his pen

And said, “I can summon a million of men
