WHAT DO YOU EXPECT?
We had two or three Senate scandals but they’re already forgotten,
They say that the appointment-for-life system is not rotten,
And our appointed senate aristocrats deserve more respect,
But we don’t know why or who they are so what do they expect?
Not a very democratic system and apparently it can’t be changed,
Unless someone writes a new constitution but how can this be arranged?
Could Trudeau write a new one -- an improvement on his father’s Charter
And in his forthcoming political career; this would be a great starter.
We need referendums, recall and compulsory voting for you and for me,
Plebiscites about first-past-the-post elections to be improved and agreed,
Propositions allowed so ordinary people can have input in high places,
So party politics does not rule the roost right in our faces.
