PROPORTIONAL REPRESENTATION BANNED... NOV 20TH,2013


PROPORTIONAL REPRESENTATION BANNED … NOV 20TH,2013
BY
JAMES BREDIN

Proportional representation should be in every campaign,
Because the established aristocrats have us tied down with their chain,
They know about distorted results, scandals and hand-picked aristocrats,
They know that less than half of us vote and therefore; we’re just brats.


They know we have no death with dignity and they couldn’t care less,
They are on the same side as the hypocrite crowd, so god bless,
We are obliged to listen to their pompous throne speech,
They might prorogue parliament if we don’t listen and you can’t screech.


They avoid proportional representation like the plague,
Politically correct answers to questions and extremely vague,
Is this democracy or dictatorship or should we have to ask?
No real set-date elections, referendums and no one up to the task.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
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.
