Canadian Changes Forbidden - Poem by James Bredin
Canadian bureaucrats have it made and don’t want to change,
Entrenched up in Ottawa and forbidden to rearrange,
They are hidden in big buildings looking out from their tower,
And they stay where they are regardless of which party is in power.
It’s all too cozy with no recall or binding referendums,
Running a government on unquestioned memorandums,
Plus our politicians tend to make a lot of noise on TV,
This way they feel all important and impress you and me.
With no set-date elections they can delay their stay forever,
There is no need to change so they think they are quite clever,
Those who could tell them to change, are themselves all appointees,
They certainly don’t want to rock the boat so no changes please.
