Poem: “The Kindergarten”


B.C. worries about the

Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.


New regulations are in the works.


Alberta retaliates,

bans B.C. wines,

suspends talks

on the purchase of electricity.


They may soon prevent B.C.

from getting gasoline and diesel.


If that doesn’t work,

they could build a wall and

force B.C. to pay for it.
