Rookie (1933 / Ennis Canada)



God forbid that we should see the Liberals come back once more,
Even though Conservative scandals are beginning to bore,
Though we need death-with-dignity and binding referendums,
We have Senate aristocrats having their own little forums.

And they have been appointed until they are each seventy five,
They’ll be still in office and we’ll be lucky to be alive,
And we don’t know why they got there because they were not elected,
Doesn’t seem very democratic, the way they were selected.

Because the Liberals have their own group waiting in the wings,
All they have to do is wait and eventually pull the right strings,
Is this the reason why less than half Canadians even vote?
And those sometimes elections that often seem so remote?
