the chairs are the members


The chairs are the members

In Parliament the chairs stayed true

As if it represents the constituency

Listening to words and echoes ringing

The people's representatives

They were absent or hide somewhere

Though they are paid their allowances

They need to do their work but why no show?

The Standing orders must be included

When Parliament is in session

Every member must be present

Half a day or more

There shouldn't be any excuse

The Speaker shouldn't allow it to happen

The notice has been given weeks ahead

The ministers and members aware of it

The chairs are the members

The real ones disappear

Leaving Parliament in echo

Of no real debate to carry weight
