A Poem: “Musical Chairs”


Prime Minister Andrew Scheer

pulls no punches

persuading his Attorney General

to drop charges against SNC-Lavalin.


He knows the importance

of keeping the company going.


Across the aisle,

Leader of the Opposition Justin Trudeau

speaks highly about the rule of law,

blames the Prime Minister for

bullying and threatening the Attorney General,

condemns a behaviour he declares

is harassment.


He knows the importance

of keeping the story running.
