Pauline Marois... Jan 20th,2013
Pauline Marois, as premier of Quebec has aroused some fear,
She might be a separatist, which could cause bad feelings here,
But she might get death-with-dignity for those in Quebec,
That means that other provinces might eventually get it yet.
That means that Canada is a step closer to normal,
And not bogged down by elite Ottawa aristocrats in formal,
But you don't know because media moguls cannot say,
They only publicize what they've been told and only then, they may.
And what we read and are told on TV could also be bent,
And without referendums or input; there's no argument,
So Pauline is the best thing to happen in Canada for years,
I just wish I understood French, which would be music to my ears.
