Appointees Make Claims... May 20th,2013 - Poem by James Bredin

I hear some appointed senators are making strange claims,
Involving taxpayers’ money but they say there’s no one to blame,
But they can keep their jobs until they are seventy five or more,
And we the people are not allowed to know the whole score.

Because appointed Ottawa senators are up there near god,
They are not elected and their appointments came with a nod,
To question this system is considered a graphic disgrace,
The Ottawa aristocrats will tell you right to your face.

How come this undemocratic bent system has been allowed?
Untouchable hierarchy of an appointed strict crowd,
Where we can die without dignity and in great pain,
Without binding referendums we have to stand in the rain.
