Our Disappointed Place... Mar 12th,2014 - Poem by James Bredin

It’s not our appointed Senate that is at fault; it’s us,
We have allowed their delusions of grandeur 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 and elites refuse to arrange,
Conspiracies for cushy jobs until they are seventy five,
You only have to sit back in a nice soft red chair to survive.

Elite travelling aristocrats seldom if ever seen,
We don’t know who they are or much about them which is obscene,
Canadians should have a binding referendum once a year,
Compulsory attendance of a five dollar fine; is that clear?
