Referendums Like The Swiss


Lots of Canadian political senate scandals these days,
Have named several appointed senators to amaze,
The Ottawa elites hope that these scandals will soon blow away,
Senators keep their jobs till they’re seventy five so they stay.

And there’s not much Canadians can do about this,
No set-date elections or referendums like the Swiss,
Or death-with-dignity and it cannot even be discussed,
Many Canadians look around and wonder, who they can trust.

Binding referendums could rid us of scandals very soon,
Annually and compulsory attendance for all in the commune,
Unfortunately we don’t have a leader to put this in place,
So be prepared for even more scandals right in our face.

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
