Appointed Canadian Senate …DEC 29TH, 2013
A system of pompous imbedded patronage imposed alive,
Appointed senators get to stay till they're seventy five,
In a huge Ottawa Red Chamber where no one is elected,
Where we can’t find fault and scandal types may get protected.
I would like to feel pleased about our Ottawa setup but I’m not,
That Red Chamber full of appointees, in case you forgot,
Blatant lifetime form of welfare for friends in very high places,
Appointed by their friends and we may not even know their faces.
The arrogance of this system has to be accepted,
The occasional scandal has therefore to be expected,
The Constitution can’t be changed because they could loose their jobs,
And Canadians have to accept this like a punch in the gob.
