Our Next Political Step … Dec 9th,2013

Canada should have binding referendums in the Charter,
Like Switzerland where people can show that they are smarter,
But our politicians would jump up and down and shout and scream,
Because this could be compared to taking away a kid’s ice cream.

We could have a binding referendum to change parole boards,
Make them responsible to the public and not act like lords,
Referendums to pick senators, governor generals and more,
Of course this would be something our appointees would deplore.

These ideas would give power to the people - not appointees,
But these kind of political changes do not happen with ease,
So we need a political leader who can lead us all the way,
Not some appointee who is in it just for the very high pay.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
