A Sunday Poem — “Bones”


A burial site uncovered

during excavations in Ottawa.


The Ontario government

asks those who might be related

to early Bytown residents

to come forward.


Bones were also found

in the Prime Minister’s closet

in connection with his family vacations

to the Bahamas.


Federal Liberals

ask anyone with information

to keep quiet.


(Editor’s note: poet Shai Ben-Shalom, an Israeli-born biologist, examines current events in the Blacklock’s tradition each and every Sunday)
