Vancouver - Toronto ... Jan 25th,2013 - Poem by James Bredin


The drug-addicts in Vancouver are allowed their own clinic,
Though Ottawa tried to close it down - told not to be a cynic,
And now they want these clinics in Toronto and Ottawa and more
They're well organized; just waiting for you, not to look and ignore.

But Toronto wants a casino and doesn't know where it should go,
Exhibition Place, the dock lands but a huge parking lot though,
They write about it in the papers almost every day,
We don't mind what they do so long as we don't have to pay.

And no one seems to have the guts to take charge of these affairs,
Busy at subcommittee meetings with round tables and chairs,
Toronto way ahead of Vancouver, except for the weather,
Too much political correctness though we are all together.
