We Can'T Arrange A Change - Poem by James Bredin
No one in Ottawa wants to fix Pierre Trudeau’s Charter of Rights,
They avoid the subject; busy on TV; sometimes in sight,
So no death-with-dignity, binding referendums or recall,
Plus appointed senators till they’re 75 and all having a ball.
The Supreme Court told Sue Rodriguez what to do and go and die,
Decisions almost forgotten now and I don’t know the reason why,
So the Supreme Court should be elected in their fancy red coats,
When and if all Canadians are ever required to vote.
I’m sorry to have to tell you about all these Ottawa events,
Because the media moguls hide most of these contents,
Because the aristocrats are high up and don’t want a change,
So don’t tell anyone about this poem and the usual nothing arranged.
