Appointed Canadian Senate …Dec 27th, 2013
A system of pompous patronage imposed on us, from above,
And it is this appointment system we are expected to love,
Senators in the huge Red Chamber until they are seventy five,
By the time they retire, you or I may not even be alive.
And we can’t change the system because it’s in the Constitution,
If we could elect these senators, it would be our solution,
And maybe then they would have to justify their existence,
And we could then rely on their political assistance.
The present system of scandals and appointments can’t make sense,
A political scandal is not treated as a criminal offence,
And appointments are not justified as to why they were made,
A high class position till they’re seventy five and very well paid.
