A Poem: “To Kiev With Love”


Ottawa to provide Kiev

with satellite images

of the conflict zone.


These might show the Ukrainians

their country is smaller than they ever thought.


But there is good news.


Our military trainers

will quickly teach them

how to reclaim their land.


After all,

who stopped Russia

from invading the True North

all these years?
