OTTAWA POLITICIANS … Jan 5th,2013

By
James Bredin

Our Ottawa politicians go into hiding and stay there,
Maybe a face in Parliament but it's all for display,
We have no input where binding referendums are banned,
But they have their party agenda and it's all well planned.




The elites who make decisions are really not interested in you,
Where we have no referendums and we do stuff on cue,
And death-with-dignity is an issue that no one can mention,
Because of the possible political problems and tension.




They are part of an establishment that you may even promote,
But why do less than half Canadians even bother to vote,
And what can we do to make Ottawa pay attention?
Death-with-dignity would be nice or did I already mention?

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
