The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Commonwealth
I think maybe the Commonwealth has finished its life on the shelf,
Chrétien’s communist friend Mugabe did it all by himself,
With his twelve African pals, they’re not pleased with the status quo,
They had thirty wars in thirty years and how did you know?
Bobby and his friends you see have problems with democracy,
Rather be presidents for life in tough autocracy,
There’s nothing wrong with that except the occasional election,
Has to be fixed first in case the people want a correction.
