NO DEATH PENALTY IN CANADA … JAN 12TH, 2014
Texas will execute it’s 500th prisoner since the penalty resumed,
Convicted killers executed by lethal injection are doomed,
This number exceeds the executions in any other state in the US,
Though thirty two states have it; not in Canada -- not us.
It would lessen the number of convicted murderers in jail,
But our politically correct politicians never failed,
Capital punishment, we’ve been told, is not popular with them,
Because in party politics, they are not allowed to condemn.
Legal battles continue about capital punishment here,
Politicians who favour it; are silent or disappear,
Our disciplined party politicians abolished it in 1976,
They did what they were told in case they might need a fix.
