Are We Helpless Now? ... June 4th,2013 - Poem by James Bredin

We can’t change the appointed Senate and why is that so strange?
Because the Ottawa elites don’t want anything rearranged,
They got the appointments until they are seventy five,
If the Senate is closed down; they would feel deprived.

And we can’t change Trudeau’s Charter because we don’t have these trends,
Because it was simply imposed by Trudeau and all his friends,
We should put assisted suicide in this Charter if we can,
No doubt the Ottawa elites would have this idea banned.

Because Canadians don’t do anything that might rock the boat,
Add that to the fact that less than half of us bother to vote,
An elected Senate, death-with-dignity and what else?
Maybe we should just shut up as usual and tighten our belts.
