Appointees Should Be Elected Apr 15th,2011 - Poem by James Bredin
Appointed Senate, High Courts and Parole Boards should be elected,
It is from them that we the people should be protected,
Their decisions are law and often, obviously no good,
They might have agendas that could help the occasional hood.
The changes we need don’t come easy and might cause a fuss,
This is backroom stuff and we don’t know what they discuss,
Of course these aristocrat appointees oppose all change,
Big powerful jobs, big pay that no known person can rearrange.
As we wait eternally for one politician with guts,
To change a soft society that seems to be going nuts,
Unfortunately too, Canadians are very reluctant to vote,
And our isolated politicians are happy and remote.
