Ode to Enbridge laments possibilities

Reader puts her opinion on pipeline situation to verse

This poem, called ‘Arise People of Canada,’ relates my concern over the proposed Enbridge pipeline:

We MUST stand on guard for our Canadian lands

Harper the Prime Minister betrayed us all

to the devil of death, rotting our Earth in Alberta, with cancer

To metastasize across beautiful British Columbia with cancerous black veins

towards sparkling waters of the Pacific,

oozing Black Death everywhere

Harper joins duplicitous Enbridge

to destroy our native lands for greedy money-hungry corporations,

devils who control politicians

“Oh Canada” We must stand on guard for thee

The Queen of B.C. no fool,

she is listening to the drums and war cries in the woods

Arise People of Canada, beat the drums of war with the caravan to the action camp.
