Canada day

One hundred and forty nine years
Standing strong as one nation
We are Canada from coast to coast
Proud, strong, free.

Election 2015

October 5, 2015

Empty promises
Plastic smiles
Lies through teeth
Speeches for miles

Day in and out
Three to pick
Each ones lies
Make me sick

Current power
Is the worst
The other two
Won’t fix the curse

It’s a rat race
No one will win
Picking any
Seems like a sin

O Canada

July 1, 2015

Fireworks flash
Red and white
Celebrate our nation
Celebrate tonight

People sing
With love and praise
Celebrate our nation
It’s Canada’s day

Bitter Cold

March 27, 2015

The bitter cold
Chilling me
Right to the bone
A cold night
It’s March,
Trending April.
What is this
The cruel cold
Canadian climate
Even after
Twenty five to life
I still feel
The bitterness
Of these nights
Right in
My empty soul

Canada day

July 1, 2014

It’s Canada day
Let’s celebrate all night long
Patriotic fun

Mute

March 28, 2014

A zipper
Pulled across
The mouths
Of a million
Dissatisfied citizens.
Democracy at it’s finest.

Wicked Weather

March 4, 2014

Dear Canada,

If you don’t
Smarten up
And put on
The damn heat
In the next
Twenty-four hours
I will have to
Resort to
Drastic measures
Like sitting inside
Huddling by
My fireplace
Cursing your name
And I am
Truly sorry,
That isn’t
In my nature.

Sincerely,
A Cold
And concerned
Canuck
