We Can't Change...


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?

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
