Just Cancel The Place Now Poem by James Bredin

Will our Supreme Court decide about our appointed Senate folk?
Will our prime minister do something or consider it a joke?
Why can’t he just abolish the Senate now and no more fuss?
Who runs this fantastic country or have we all gone nuts?

Are those hand-picked elites actually in supreme command?
And you better shut up because you are only a hired hand,
Are you in the majority that didn’t vote and still refuse?
No wonder the appointed Senate can operate while we snooze.

And these appointees can stay till they are seventy five,
They’ll still be there and we’ll be lucky to be still alive,
These senators too should be elected in a democratic way,
And compulsory voting would protect us and let be what we may.
