Sunday Poem: “Elections”


Andrew Scheer

faces a delicate task:

scoop up the admirers

of Stephen Harper, Doug Ford,

Kellie Leitch and Maxime Bernier

while insisting

he is nothing like Harper, Ford,

Leitch or Bernier.


Justin Trudeau’s task

is rather simple:

tell voters

he is nothing like the Justin

they have seen thus far.
