Timid Silent Fixation May 9th 2011 - Poem by James Bredin

Our overpaid politicians will arrange a commission,
They feel their high pay is too low and they need an addition,
The weakness in our system is our lack of participation,
Most constituents have this timid silent fixation.

Canadians should have the ability to bring about change,
Binding referendums and death with dignity is not strange,
But the appointed Supreme Court and the Senate are opposed,
And their hidden motives and agendas are never exposed.

We need strong leaders, who can see a kilometer down the road,
Not nitwits afraid to read the writing on the wall and decode,
Because you know and I know that we need to bring about some change,
We only need to sit down and talk and write and rearrange.
