NEW CANADIAN CONSTITUTION... AUG 2ND,2013
Adult Canadians should have a legal obligation or be fined,
Vote in all elections to demonstrate democracy inclined,
And senators who were not elected should get the boot,
And maybe we should rewrite our Constitution on this route.
We should have a binding referendum system installed next year,
The first question should be death-with-dignity without fear,
A system should be inagurated to produce the questions to ask,
Despite the fact that politicians think this; a disagreeable task.
Why is this considered a major sin by the Ottawa elites?
Where some appointed senators can’t find their receipts,
Where the appointed aristocrats want nothing to change,
Except maybe improve their score on the driving range.
