Why Bother To Vote? - Poem by James Bredin
Canadians seldom vote which doesn't mean that we don't care,
But nothing much changes in Ottawa that we are aware,
Where illegal immigrants and refugees claim Charter rights,
And the politically correct are afraid to turn on the lights.
We need binding referendums which all parties refuse,
They're busy taxing and spending and maybe going on a cruise,
We need set-date elections and compulsory voting for all,
Australia has it but we have to read the rules on the cell wall.
And the parole boards are busy letting criminals out of jail,
Or arranging for others to get cheap and easy bail,
We are our own worst enemy with Trudeau's Charter of Rights,
Where every criminal, refugee, deportee scream their delights.
