THE RED CHAMBER... DEC 28TH,2013


THE RED CHAMBER … DEC 28TH,2013
BY
JAMES BREDIN

Canada has a Red Chamber full of appointees that we can’t change,
They are there until they are seventy five though this may seem strange,
Blatant ivy league welfare system that can’t be touched by us,
And as far as Canadians can remember; it was ever thus.


How these aristocrats become eligible is unknown,
That question is usually answered with a quiet groan,
It’s like binding referendums or death-with-dignity,
And no answer for forbidden questions instantly.


Most political parties are represented in this scheme,
Party members accept this so there is no need to scream,
And media moguls never make it an issue so it stays hidden,
The reason you don’t know anything, is because its forbidden.

    Excepting Benedict,
    is there a pope at the top
    who's there till he's dead,
    who makes even the old feel lively? (Report) Reply
