DEMOCRACY AND DEATH-WITH-DIGNITY
Democracy and appointed senators-for-life don’t mix,
Regardless of official propaganda and claims they can fix,
But should we delete the appointed-for-life useless Red Chamber?
Could we change them and make them useful and what is the danger?
Canadians need a democratic political solution soon,
It’s been said, the appointed Red Chamber could brings us to ruin,
Someone has decided that a proper audit should be done,
Extensive global and national travel expences are no fun.
Could we insert death-with-dignity into Senate obligations?
And eliminate most of our appointed-Senate frusterations?
Connected to a binding referendum system for us all?
Bring back real democracy and avoid a political brawl.
I realize that that these proposals are too radical for them,
Some appointed holy religious type will stand up and condemn,
They don’t want us to have death-with-dignity when we die,
And they certainly don’t want us to stand up and ask why.
