AN ADDITIONAL POEM (written in 2015)
-Gayathri B. Seetharam
Justin Trudeau has been sworn in as Prime Minister of Canada on Nov 4th,2015
Fittingly, since it is Remembrance Day on the 11th of Nov, he wore a poppy in his coat lapel to commemorate the early literal bed-time of soldiers

A Ballad on Beverley McLachlin, the ex-Chief Justice of the Supreme Court
-Gayathri B. Seetharam
According to Wikipedia, a ballad consists of 13 lines and is a narrative which can be sung. It has an ABABBCBC form consisting of rhymed verses or couplets, each of 14 syllables. I managed to get all of it but could not keep up the required number of syllables. But in my defence, the poet whose work has been used as an example in Wikipedia had only 10 syllables.
I would also like to say that on World Freedom of Press Day, which is today, I referred to a feature in The Globe and Mail published on Jan 13th,2018 by Fred Lum.
