WE HAVE TO CHANGE … JULY 20TH, 2013
An appointed aristocrat Senate was imposed long ago,
They get to stay till they are seventy five or didn’t you know?
But the recent Ottawa Senate scandals have caused us to think,
About these Senate appointees who got there with a wink.
There’s something obviously wrong here that we should make right,
But we have no set-date elections or referendums in sight,
And when we do get an election; less than half of us vote,
And the party politicians who win, all pompously gloat.
So we need compulsory referendums at least once a year,
And if we then have a problem, we can at least then steer clear,
And democracy will count, where now it is relatively unknown,
Canadians should not have to feel like we’re standing alone.
