We Need Changes Now - Poem by James Bredin

The changes we need, for the most part, remain well hidden,
By the media or the Supreme Court, they are strongly forbidden,
Can’t even be discussed at elections because it’s never allowed,
To think about this, could put you under a human-rights cloud.

A provincial premier should be prime minister each year,
Not politicians trying to turn the top job into a career,
No parties claiming to have special parliamentary rights,
Votes in parliament should be by individuals – not party fights.

We need death with dignity and binding referendums to start,
Not a remote idea from some political bleeding heart,
We need proportional representation in every ward,
It should be the people – not the politicians – who scored.
