The Referendum-Recall Act
What if your MP deserted or joined the other side?
And to hide his/her criminal past he/she lied and lied?
Or their connections with the Mafia or other types?
Hidden by their hideous friends in political hype?
What if conflict of interest showed billions disappeared?
And appointed hierarchy said no need to fear?
And with a lock on every vote-block; they want to stay?
And the people locked out and can’t make them go away?
What if a vote-block wants a favor from above?
And we watch mesmerized as their push comes to shove,
They claim equality as written in their Charter,
Is this good or bad or a blueprint for disaster?
Ask your MP about the Referendum-Recall Act,
He or she will look at you as if you have gone cracked,
Tell him or her that California has one and you’d like one too,
And referendums and recall are long overdue.
