Treasure Island

James Bredin

(1933 / Ennis Canada)



Propositions are forbidden and binding referendums too,
No one has ever heard of a Canadian judicial review,
Death-with-dignity is forbidden but not abortion clinics,
Killing unborn babies is legal for our odd academics.

The Supreme Court denied Sue Rodriguez death-with-dignity,
She could die in pain and they could or would show no sympathy,
No one can remember if or when we had a plebiscite,
And all political party members think this is quite exquisite.

Proportional representation is overlooked and denied,
And this is not supposed to hurt our dignity and pride,
They say we have set-date elections but no one knows when,
Those who are interested may have to go back and ask again.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
