Shudder

Yes, George, shudder. Why? Politics George. You know I don’t do politics.
Wonder what the first woman Cabinet Minister of Canada would have said about my aversion to politics.

Is that fair? Don’t men deserve an honourable mention?
Well there is one senator … A man … The first native man appointed.

Possibly would not have thought too highly of this Granny who doesn’t even belong to a reputable … Well actually Granny belongs to no party …shame shame Granny … No loyalty … No wonder Granny never gets any nice tweaks or twitters.
She simply is not smart enough to talk politics. But knowing nothing about something! … that never stopped Granny talking before.

Harpin’ Without a Harper … With no Harp … The Rock Opera in Progress

2017
January 2
A new day has dawned.
Some might say
A time for change
What was it
That old man said
Be the change?
There is in memory
From long ago
An expression
A French saying
Mette la table
The spelling might
Be not quite right
But hey!
I set my table
The best I can
The best I am able
With good wishes
Peace and joy
Justice for all
As I serve
What I gather
From Mettacentre.org

………………….Horizon……………………………
Times are changing.
2016 is almost over.
The Harper knave
Never arrived

All those years
We waited
In precarity
While all across
This great country
Ad usque ad mare
As some might say
Bad spelling notwithstanding
Even those
Who never took a stand
For or against
We waited
For the Harper
Who never arrived.

Another year has gone by
Quickly so quickly
It is now December 2016

Much has happened
Still
We have no place

Artists and musicians
We struggle
In this place
Asking for little
Besides a safe place
To live and work.
For food they say
You must pay more
No one will tell us
Why that is.

Imagine
What this world would be
Without artists and musicians.
Yes, philosophers too
And others who care …
Nobody asking questions
That need to be asked.

A Study?
Yet another study?
While we languish
These last few years
While they study
Us to death.
