POLITICAL POWER … JAN 11TH, 2014
Without binding referendums, we have little or no power,
Our politicians love it this way and just want us to cower,
The mere mention of this fact might get a smile or two or three,
But that’s all because nothing changes for you or for me.
It means a change to the Charter, which they refuse to do,
And reading these poems on the Internet is not good for you,
We need a leader, preferably one who sees this as a way to win,
Because the mere mention of a referendum is now a sin.
How do we convince Ottawa that this is what we need?
Not more appointees with manipulative Senate greed,
And our first referendum should be for death with dignity,
And our second to elect senators brilliantly.
