James Bredin

Rookie (1933 / Ennis Canada)


Participatory democracy and propositions banned,
Nothing is allowed to change under the Ottawa command,
Plebiscites and binding referendums would interfere,
Establishment occupy the high ground but they are sincere.

And first-past-the-post system is going to stay there forever,
No proportional representation because that’s too clever,
The appointed Supreme Court will make all the proper decisions,
Therefore there will be no need for political revisions.

Because all decisions are all based on Trudeau’s Charter of Rights
Written for everyone in the world who want to avoid their fights,
This is one of the reasons why less than half of us even vote,
No influence, no changes and we’re all in the same boat.
