DEMOCRACY OR WHAT... AUG 25TH,2013 Poem by James Bredin
Why does it seem; we should have more control of our politicians?
Because they act like elite aristocrats above suspicions,
Why are our senators appointed for life or seventy five?
How did they get there secretly and did they have to connive?
Where should I go to apply for a Senate position?
I might be too old and stupid but I still have some ambition,
Could our Senate handle a death-with-dignity clause?
Because the others are afraid so no one gets applause.
Why do I get the opinion, they avoid this subject like the plague?
Or if they answer a question; it is extremely vague,
Is this democracy or dictatorship or should we have to ask?
No set-date elections, DWD, referendums or up to the task.
