You are not going to believe what happened to me the other day when I thought the leader of our country, Canada, was representing our interests and values at a U.N. session of such importance that most of the leaders of the G-20 and myriad other countries thought it best to attend. There was also, during this same time period, an important meeting of said leaders in an effort to stave off the imminent demise of our planet and populations due to climate change – a meeting to which I also expected our venerable leader would be contributing. Alas, this is what transpired;
I walked around the corner
And I walked around the block
And I walked right into a bakery shop
And I picked up a donut
And I wiped off the grease
And there was Harper with his PR piece.
Well, he looked at the PR
And he looked at me
And he said this PR is so good for me
There’s a hole in the ozone and it goes right through
And I just have no inkling what to do!
Said I, there’s a hole in your politics too!
Jump in the breadbox you crumb
In anticipation of an outcry from my compatriots, let me just say that I do recognize that Tim Horton’s is more than just a donut shop… it is the heart and soul of our Canadian identity! Yes, yes I know!
