Sunday Poem: “Then Who?”


My friend overseas


about Canadian politics.


“I’ve heard your Prime Minister

is losing popularity,” he says.


I agree that’s what the polls show.


“Think he might lose the election?” he asks.

I say that’s a possibility.


“So the Leader of the Opposition

could become your next Prime Minister?”


I tell him that’s not what the polls show.

“I don’t get it,” he says.
