BINDING REFERENDUMS AND YOU... FEB 18TH,2014


BINDING REFERENDUMS AND YOU … FEB 18TH,2014
BY
JAMES BREDIN

We need to get the loonie close to the US dollar,
Though media moguls seem to treat this idea with horror,
And politicians don’t know whether the economy is going up or down,
They are party members and want to hide the fact, that they may be clowns.


Without binding referendums, we are helpless in this affair,
The Ottawa aristocrats like it this way and they don’t care,
Party politicians have been told what to do and what to think,
And death with dignity is banned by the party with a wink.


No binding referendums or medical assistance in dying,
Lots of travelling politicians who deny that they are lying,
But things are great and only they are allowed to decide what’s up,
No binding referendums for you so just shut up and its rough.

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
