The Liberals - Poem by James Bredin

The Liberals are so accustomed to power they just wait,
They feel sure that eventually there will be an election date,
And when they get back in, they’ll do just like they did before,
Absolutely nothing until they are again kicked out the door.

Therefore we need a law to impose set election dates,
But there is no way this will be discussed or come up for debate,
Because all our elected politicians want nothing to change,
They want to stay in Ottawa for ever and why should that be strange?

The idea of referendums is absolutely forbidden,
Or political recall by constituents is also well hidden,
And first-past-the-post system is there forever to stay,
And those of you who want changes just better walk away.

    This is sooo true. It is absolutely horrifying, isn't it. The government is supposed to work for the people, but it instead treats us as slaves. (Report) Reply
