The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Peace and Good Government

Peace and Good Government


James Bredin

Does the premise of peace and good government hide the lie?
That politicians donít die but cheat and steal and say good bye?
Does the politeness of the people give them this permission?
To manipulate the system to improve their condition?

Are Canadians forbidden to challenge authority?
Is proportional representation a majority?
Should politicians be expected to be accountable?
Are changes to the system forbidden or surmountable?

Should binding referendums and recall be forever refused?
Is it possible to have crooked politicians accused?
Are allegations left for life-time appointees to decide?
The guild or innocence of friends in whom they often confide.

No proportional representation or set election dates?
Why do the spin doctor fix questions for televised debates?
Should the Ottawa gnomes obscure and hide all their blunders?
While these pompous parliamentarians deny like thunder.

Should the spin doctors of the Access Act forbid information?
The billions that flow to all their socialist friendly foundations,
Are Canadians considered as lambs by these politicians?
To be led to the slaughter to further their ambitions?
