A CANADIAN ELECTION... MAY 26TH,2013


An election is a very expensive five-year affair,
But Canadians don’t have to vote so few of us go there,
No proportional representation so not sure if it’s fair,
And If we’re not sure, we have to hide our utter despair.




And we can’t elect our prime minister by his/her name,
This is a very intrigued and involved political party game,
And if for some reason, we elect the wrong politician,
He/she can’t be recalled from his/her crooked ambition.




Not one will reply to a question about death with dignity,
The whole subject is treated with complete hostility,
And without binding referendums we have little influence,
So an election could be an insignificant incidence.

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
