Your Politician ... Jan 13th,2013 - Poem by James Bredin



Our politicians go to Ottawa and look down from above,
They like themselves a lot and they certainly are in love,
They are party members and are locked into to their agendas,
Not yours but their party's; written in the party memorandas.

This means that issues like death-with-dignity are forgotten,
Not politically correct enough and therefore considered rotten,
No plebiscites, proportional representation or elected senators,
And nothing much will change because they are also your censors.

They are involved in various committee meetings here and there,
Very important stuff though there's no need for you to know or care,
And they want to stay in office for at least ten more years,
They think Liberal Justin Trudeau is great so they have no fears.
