Do We Have An Independent Canadian Politician? - Poem by James Bredin

When politicians go to Ottawa, they take on airs,
They become the establishment and it’s none of our affairs,
Isolated from constituents with pompous party agendas,
While their media moguls will produce their propaganda.

Binding referendums, euthanasia and recall not mentioned,
And they’d like to stay in Ottawa until they are pensioned,
You are merely an observer in these events so stay cool,
Not a chance that the establishment will ever change some rules.

We need changes up there and not just some window dressing,
Unknown number of incoming refugees to keep us guessing,
Is it possible for Canadians to have a tea party?
Is the UN Security Council without us, feeling hearty?
