SO WE COULD MAKE A CONTRIBUTION … NOV 22ND,2013
Forcing our politicians to listen, can be very rough,
They have their own party agenda and for them, that’s enough,
We need a system written down to initiate a change,
That’s BINDING REFERENDUMS for all and this is not strange.
Switzerland has had it for years but our politicians look away,
They are aristocrats and therefore, don’t have to listen or obey,
So we need a leader, willing to listen and change the Constitution,
And add binding referendums so we can make a contribution.
It’s as though the word REFERENDUM is forbidden where they hang out,
As though it is bad language or swear words so go another route,
The only appointed senators we know, have been let go,
So we have some serious problems and I thought I’d let you know.
