We Can'T Change... - Poem by James Bredin
They’re elite wealthy connected Ottawa aristocrats,
Who walk on water, have scandals though some are diplomats,
Protected by their media mogul friends, to keep their positions
And when scandals are exposed; they never make admissions.
We cannot have DWD or binding referendums - no way,
Our politicians refuse to talk about it and stay away,
And these appointed senators are there till they are seventy five,
Then they get a high pension and continue to thrive.
Why are we stuck with these problems and can’t get free?
Where’s the political leadership we need - not an appointee?
Could we have set-date elections and compulsory votes?
Is there anyone high up in Ottawa allowed to take notes?
