Poem: ‘It’s All In The Details’


The Department of National Defence

has produced some impressive work,

like the 107-page document

specifying the military’s new mittens,

or the 203 pages detailing

sleeping bags.


South of the border,

the new administration

will soon release

its immigration policy.


Expected to be

thorough, comprehensive, and

well thought-out.


All 140 characters of it.
