REFERENDUMS … Mar 30th,2013
James Bredin

Binding referendums are the flashpoint of political change,
To compel our politicians to pay attention and arrange,
We might have to change the Constitution to arrange this,
Though our politicians and appointees would try to dismiss.

Canadians are kept in place by these Ottawa appointees,
Though politicians may change; the appointees are trustees,
Whether they’re judges or senators they stay and they stay,
Those who want to change things will have to just go and stay away.

So no referendums or death-with-dignity will be allowed,
From this enshrined Ottawa aristocratic high-up crowd,
It doesn’t matter if Justin leads the Liberals out of the woods,
They belong to the same crowd with the same masks and hoods.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
