A Poem — “Going Nowhere”


Budget cuts send duty travel

to the chopping board.


Rima to cancel her study trip to B.C.;

Pierre isn’t going to the conference;

Karla will skip this year’s stakeholders’ meeting.


The Director General

wants these changes processed, signed

by end of day Tuesday,

before he leaves

for China.
