Canadian Appointed Senate - Poem by James Bredin
It’s not our appointed Senate that is at fault; it’s us,
We have allowed an elite corporate conspiracy without a fuss,
And less than half of us bother to vote in any election,
All these little details may indeed have a connection.
There is no doubt about it but Canada needs to change,
Unfortunately our appointed senators think this is too strange,
Conspiracies for life-long cushy jobs behind the scene,
Elite travelling appointed aristocrats seldom if ever seen.
Canadians should have a binding referendum once a year,
Compulsory attendance of a five dollar fine; is that clear?
Only questions that can be answered with a yes or a no,
On or about the tenth of September each year in a row.
