The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Canadian Politicians
How do we bring politicians to account?
Lying and cheating to no small amount,
Hidden conspiracies but they donít care,
Manipulating media they do dare.
Design a system of balance and check,
Referendums and callbacks for us with neck,
Stick their status quo where the sun donít shine,
Proportional representation time.
A triple E Senate might change things around,
Their behavior as if our money was found,
And traveling the world in junkets galore,
Directing dollars to the hometown store.
Constitution with no property rights,
Count communist and socialists delights,
But nothing can change because theyíre so good,
As they claim they would if only they could.
No subpoenas or inquiries allowed,
TV cameras in parliament are cowed,
Meaningless pantomime of photo op,
Like flies to a summer light, they canít stop.
