MAJORITY GOVERNMENT ... DEC 18TH,2012


MAJORITY GOVERNMENT … DEC 18TH,2012
BY
JAMES BREDIN

Majority government could and should change the rules and soon,
Stephen Harper; are you listening or have you left the room?
I am a Conservative on your side so help me out,
Death-with-dignity could give us lots more clout.




I realize that political parties wont touch this case,
As if this could be a terrible political disgrace,
But many European countries and Oregon already have it,
And more countries every week; so let's get with it.




I'm surprised you haven't paid attention to these notes,
Like proportional representation or compulsive votes,
Or binding referendums or judicial reviews,
Or real set-date elections - whatever you choose.

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
