The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Pedophile Prisoners with a vote

Pedophile Prisoners with a vote


James Bredin

They gave pedophiles in prison for murder the vote,
Not the people but the Supreme Court you’ll note,
Human rights they called it and then they all cheered,
Now they want their own MP though this sounds weird.

Then they want him in parliament to push for their rights,
Easy and early parole and continue these fights,
To the Supreme Court where these decisions are made,
By your hidden-agenda appointees, I’m afraid.

But everything is great as you have been told,
No need to change the constitution or be bold,
You just pay and pay for court cases galore,
Lines of lawyers after lawyers for ever more.

In a judicial dictatorship ruled by friends,
Appointed by the prime minister to make amends,
No input from the people because that’s not allowed,
The Supreme Court in lock step with human-rights crowd,

You believe their propaganda because you’ve been told,
Time and again no need to think; just stay in your mould,
The Trudeau/Chretien Charter can never be checked,
Without these human rights, they say, we’d be wrecked.
