Afghanistan Canadian War - Poem by James Bredin
Is Afghanistan good for a referendum and why not?
Dead soldiers on the Highway of Heroes in case you forgot,
Does this send a message of why we should stay over there?
As we stand in a trance and watch, counting hearses and stare.
And there are still many more coffins en route and on the way,
And even many more American returning over there they say,
Could we have an Afghanistan referendum for “IN” or “OUT”?
Should we bow our heads in submission and pretend we’re devout?
Politicians in Kandahar for photo ops over there,
Making a grand officious announcement that they really do care,
Can’t have propositions, referendums or judicial reviews,
No plebiscites, proportional representation or strange views.
