No One Can Be Blamed Aug 1st,2012 - Poem by James Bredin

A reduced sentence because of time served gives the soft judge an out,
Politically-correct-religion types never have a doubt,
Less than half the Canadians vote so we don't even count,
Then add the Parole Board and sentence reduced by a larger amount.

And without referendums or input, we seem to run on remote,
Like a country caught in soft left wing socialist ideas they promote,
Because set-date elections or mandatory votes are not mentioned,
Can't rock the judicial boat and judges can't be questioned.

And many criminals carry illegal guns because they know,
Soft courts, easy time and it's all just a judicial floor show,
And if they are the right age, they cannot even be named,
A fairy tale in the papers where no one can be blamed.
