Cushy Canadian Criminal Care - Poem by James Bredin
In Canada, we’re not allowed to have prisoners on death row,
Though its a place where legal-aid lawyers could make a lot of dough,
Because executions are not politically correct.
And bail is easy to get regardless of whose life was wrecked.
Double credit for time in jail as they await being sentenced,
Can take years off their time in jail so no need for much repentance,
Just one more shameful Canadian reluctance to enforce,
And no changes because politicians are all out on the golf course.
And Canadians convicts around the world want to come home,
To our soft system that is as comfortable and soft as foam,
And then onto the Supreme Court for bail and even more Charter rights,
Could be free on vacation in no time taking in the tourist sights.
