Favoring Neighborly Respect

(greetings with a sigh from USA)


We’re not all like Dwayne Wade

Canada is our neighbor, deserving

Of respect


And you are liked


There is enough to contend with


Fire, life of First Nations, economy,

And government—correlations in



Antics courtesy of the NBA are

Neither needed nor liked nor

Incumbent here


We are friends—maybe we will

Match our amity in action, as

We do in many things


But, as with national songs, a

Kinship should be lifted,

Celebrated, and served, O



The land of hope for all who toil,

The true North strong and free!


Thank you for forbearing,

From your friend
