What We Could Change Aug 8th,2012 - Poem by James Bredin


Our politicians will not bring back capital punishment,
They will look at you and this with complete astonishment,
And compulsory voting for all, is out of the question,
And death with dignity could put them into deep depression.

The idea of binding referendums will always be banned,
Recall by constituents of their MP; will not stand,
Supreme Court, Governor General and parole boards elected,
These are questions that should be asked to us affected.

All convicted criminals should serve all their complete time,
And that sentence should be compulsory for each and every crime,
Therefore we should elect our future prime ministers by name,
Because it should be personalities and not a party game.

Victims notified of transfers of assailants to other places,
No more prison bureaucratic stunts right in our faces,
TV cameras in House of Commons show empty seats,
In case MPs are off visiting their relatives in Greece.
