Mandatory Voting Now - Poem by James Bredin
Mandatory voting would be a step in the right direction,
A major right step in our democratic discretion,
Unfortunately the powers that be, like things the way they are,
With less than half Canadians voting - this is bizarre.
Therefore something is very wrong that has to be put right,
But media moguls are pleased the way things are though not bright,
But we also need binding referendums and death with dignity,
But our aristocrats consider this as adversity.
Big money should not be allowed to dominate an election,
Or influence us going in any democratic direction,
Politicians should be compelled to do what they said they would do,
Not disappear for a few years doing nothing but who knew?
