WHAT CAN WE DO? … Jan 6th,2013


James Bredin

The elites who make decisions are not interested in you,
Where referendums are banned because we all behave on cue,
And death-with-dignity is also banned though this can't even be said
In case those ideas are accepted and become widespread.

No proportional representation or all-voting rules,
Entrenched as though Canadians were nothing but fools,
That plus our elite aristocrats appointed from a very secret list,
That can't be seen or read as though it didn't exist.

Because party politicians are locked in like a religion,
They do exactly what they're told like a homing pigeon,
Where binding referendums and death-with-dignity are unknown,
And don't expect changes in a forthcoming speech from the throne.
