No Control of Canadian Politicians


James Bredin

We have no control of Canadian politicians once they get elected
No referendums or recalls as the electorate is neglected
Pious politicians could be liars, drunks, pedophiles or punks
As they tax and spend, give and lend and make out they’re monks

They like to arrange foreign aid for demigod dictators far away
So their wives can shop in Paris and spend and prance all day
They like to visit these dudes and stay for weeks and months
And return to parade in parliament for real taxpaying runts

They might call an election in another five years and maybe not
And hide their actions in the Access Act to make sure all is forgot
They’ll decide when and who will be the next prime minister
You can’t vote in or while they administer - surely quite sinister

The legacy of this system could surely spell disaster
He will choose the Supreme Court and Senators; he’s the master
No questions or answers for special interests or hidden agendas
Missing billion, Shawinigan shenanigans or foreign verandahs
