James Bredin (1933 / Ennis Canada)
The Next Scandal...
Do we have the leadership to get us out of this mess?
Scandal after scandal and few politicians need to confess,
Where less than half of us vote on no-real-set election dates,
Where half our politicians are appointed and no need for debate.
Maybe this is the reason why less than half of us even vote,
That plus the three senators who got fired were not charged, please note,
And a scandal is not a real scandal if no one gets charged,
No need for an election if they are replaced and numbers enlarged.
And the appointed Senate will decide if something should be done,
They are aristocrats and the average Canadian can’t name one,
We don’t have death-with-dignity or compulsory votes,
Media moguls like these scandals seldom complain but promote.
