Transparancy... July 13th,2013
Transparancy and accountability are really sparse,
Infact politicians tend to treat these issues as a farce,
And unless its mentioned in the papers, we will never know,
They’re busy at the moment, traveling and going to and fro.
Appointed senators stay until they are seventy five,
They don’t have to win an election so no need to connive,
They are like elite established hereditary aristocrats,
So high up that they don’t need anyone to go to bat.
They are a built-in part of our imposed Ottawa regime,
No DWD or binding referendums in that pipe dream,
No need to be transparent because there’s so little to hide,
Just shut up your mouth and swallow your Canadian pride.
