Is It Time For The West?

Is it time for The West to become a Nation?
Is it time to leave this unequal confederation?
All the power appears to reside in the East
Two Provinces have most of the electoral seats

Has The West for too long been getting shafted?
Is it time to say enough: is the system crooked?
The West can vote till its blue in the face
But, the East has the numbers in what takes place

If “The Bloc” can have whatever it wants to do
Should this arrangement not apply to The West too?
The West once had a party that was called: “Reform”
But, it was sold out from within, and treated with scorn

Has the time come for what some call, “Wexit”?
Will The West eventually decide it wants to exit?
Has The West had enough of this unfair situation?
Is it time for The West to become a western nation?
