Toronto - New York... Sep 26th,2013 - Poem by James Bredin

Toronto Canada is just across the lake from New York State,
Same culture, language, TV, radio, so no need to update,
Same weather, rotten or fine, winter too cold or summer too hot,
Lots of jobs so there’s no need for anyone to feel distraught,

And that national border is more trouble than it’s worth,
Bureaucrats checking whether you are going south or going north,
Canadians know that prices are better on the other side,
But can’t buy, get or bring back guns because that is denied.

I think we should figure out an easier way to come and go,
Pompous politicians and bureaucrats may not agree though,
And there’s no great reason for any of them to figure it out,
As we watch each other on TV we don’t have any doubt.
