Treasure Island

James Bredin

(1933 / Ennis Canada)


For some reason less than half Canadians vote in elections,
So therefore party politicians have an advantage in selections,
And all those elected party politicians, want to keep it this way,
And those who want to change have little or nothing to say.

While those who get an appointment to the Senate have it made for life,
That plus a long list of entitlements, should end all their strife,
So there’s no need to complain or make a noise or make any waves,
And there’s no death-with-dignity when you go to your grave.

So we need a Canadian Compulsory Voting Law soon,
Not in ten years time when and if we get a blue moon,
That plus binding referendums and death with dignity would help,
Get us out of these annoying scandals and no need to yelp.

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
