NO PROROGUING PARLIAMENT... SEP 28TH,2013


Peace, order and good government may not be good enough,
Because without recall or binding referendums, it can be rough,
Politicians speaking in slogans with no set election dates,
Frequently prorogued parliament and no need for debates.




Death-with-dignity bills lost nine times because of this and that,
Therefore assisted suicide is never discussed or arrived at,
It’s as though the issue never existed so there is no need,
High aristocrats can hide in Ottawa and pay no heed.



Politicians who speak in slogans from their party agenda,
Don’t have an independent thought outside party propaganda,
Therefore we’re going nowhere fast because they hate all change,
It would be nice though if DWD could be politically arranged.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
