The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Pompous Canadian Policies

Pompous Canadian Policies


James Bredin

Why do our inept pompous politicians tend to think?
They can get away with what they’re doing with a wink?
And claim that our slick soft-power policies will impress,
And in case of tsunami they’ll send someone to assess.

Though most of our politicians are still overseas,
They’ll study in the shade while they wait around to see,
But no decision because all leadership is gone,
They’ve been traveling so long that they think they don’t belong.

But when and if they come back they might make a decision,
Some adscam administrator with pompous precision,
Stand up on TV and make a declaration,
All tanned from the sun and the nation’s salvation.

Lobotomized surly slaves of the system they endear,
That can’t be changed or tampered because they revere,
Where referendums and recall are eternally banned,
And same-sex stuff imposed because activists demand.

It’s the Charter and bilingualism you see,
Activist Supreme Court appointees and bourgeoisie,
You’ll be informed if or when they call an election,
As they manipulate the system to their perfection.
