The System Is Perfect... Sept 16th,2013 - Poem by James Bredin
As Canadians, we don’t vote for our prime minister by name,
The political party does and this is not the same - a shame,
And the prime minister then appoints his friends as senators,
Mulroney’s appointees gave us the GST - the instigators.
Neither can our Senate system be changed, like it or not,
So much for distant democracy; we have to deal with what we got,
Which could be why, only less than half of us bother to vote,
Indifferent unchangeable system that may have us by the throat?
Hundreds of appointees though Canadians may know one or two,
I have to pay Mulroney’s GST and of course you do too.
But everything is perfect; like what some media moguls say.
And don’t you dare ask them a question or think or quiz their ways.
