Stop Grumbling... Oct 23rd,2013 - Poem by James Bredin

Could they prorogue parliament again just to go fishing?
Could they pass a law that we should stop Internet bitching?
Because they are aristocrats and we are just non-voting numbers,
No compulsory voting, DWD and no more grumblers.

And another speech from the throne by an aristocrat up high,
And none of those compliant journalists will dare to explain why,
This is front-and-center political Ottawa stuff here and now,
And no one would dare to stand up straight and disallow.

Because we need death-with-dignity and the sooner the better,
We need one politician on our side who is a go-getter,
We also need compulsory voting which they swept under the rug,
And then they behave like appointed aristocrats and smug.
