Beyond the Text Theme Quest Week Five

A NEW CANADIAN CONSTITUTION May 12th,2011

Why is it that you can only read stuff like this on a blog?
Because human rights and politically correct control the fog,
What we need is one politician to tell it like it is,
And compulsory voting for all Canadian election biz.

We need binding referendums and judicial reviews,
Because ordinary Canadians always seem to lose,
We need plebiscites and proportional representation,
And prisoners to stay in jail for their whole sentence duration.

We need death with dignity and political propositions,
We need to be able to recall useless politicians,
Why does our court system have publication bans here and there?
We may need a new constitution if anyone really cares

I chose to talk about this poem because it ties into what we were talking about this past week about the constituation. This poem is very recent and it talks about the issues that we as Canadians face today. This poem cuts right down to the core and gets to the main issue. The author tells it how it is and doesnt hold back. I think if more Canadians voiced their opinion like this author a lot more change would come about.
