We're Very Busy At The Moment... Dec 10th,2013


'Your call is important to us, so please hold the line,
Because up here in Ottawa we feel we’re on top and very divine,
And you are probably one of those who didn’t bother to vote,
That’s fine with us but I still think we’ll have to put you on remote.

We’re going to appoint some Supreme Court judges early next week,
And more senators after that which you never can critique,
Then of course, we’ll appoint some members of the parole board,
They are all excellent establishment members and now they’ve scored.

Propositions and binding referendums, as you know, are banned,
No recall or influence on politicians with slight of hand,
Proportional representation is out for first past the post,
We’re so busy at the moment that we’re totally engrossed.”
