PARTY BOUND... MAR 6TH,2013


PARTY BOUND … MAR 6TH,2013
BY
JAMES BREDIN


Our Canadian politicians are very reluctant to change,
Their parties instruct them that change is too strange,
And as party politicians they can't have an independent thought,
They have to follow the party agenda and not be distraught.




We should have an improved system where they have some independence,
And not march in lock step, completely party bound and dependant,
We should have proportional representation for those who now vote,
And compulsory voting in the future so we should take note.




Though committed party members will scream that this is not sound,
And there has never been another way since they have been around,
But many party politicians could be compared to religious nuts,
It's the country - not the party - for whom they should work their buts.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
