No More Appointees... Nov 15th,2013 - Poem by James Bredin


Our hand-picked Supreme Court and hand-picked Senate are facing off,
This could involve the Constitution which could be awful rough,
Because closing the Senate could put them out of a job,
Appointed aristocrats could become an unemployed mob.

The alternative could be a continuation of Senate talks,
Who could be appointed, who should be appointed and who walks?
This has been going on for a hundred and thirty five years,
Enough to bring an ordinary Canadian to tears,

But I have a solution that could close our Senate down,
And no need for the Supreme Court in their fancy red gowns,
Tell the prime minister to appoint no one to that place,
And in a few years it will be just an empty Red Chamber space.
