THE REFERENDUM GAME AUG 19TH,2012


THE REFERENDUM GAME AUG 19TH,2012
BY
JAMES BREDIN

The separatists in Quebec are already screaming for change,
Ottawa pays little attention and why is that so strange?
Because they don't like referendums which their aristocrats hate,
No death with dignity, referendums, separation or debate.




But we should all have referendums and have them by next year,
Why is this something that our Ottawa aristocrats fear?
Now is our chance to get ahead in this referendum game,
And in isolated Ottawa; there would be no need to inflame.




Several referendums could cause the separatists to think,
That Ottawa is not stuck in the mud though it seldom blinks,
Canadian politicians extremely reluctant to change,
Unlike Quebec separatists who want to rearrange.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
