Parole Board May 18th,2011 - Poem by James Bredin

Our appointed Parole Board tends to let criminals out of jail,
We have no referendum system so they do it without fail,
Decisions made behind walls and many locked and closed doors,
Appointees with no obligations to you so no one knows the score.

Because no one can question the parole board’s decisions,
And no one is allowed to come up with other revisions,
Something is definitely wrong but we’re not allowed to think,
And the media goes along and accepts it all with a wink.

Infact very few of their decisions are made public knowledge,
Surprise surprise; the Canadian Parole Board doesn’t acknowledge,
No one can find fault with any of these government appointee,
You have been trained to just bow your head and you have to agree.
