THE BARD ON MUSKRAT, MARIJUANA AND CORRUPTION


SUITS?
Do “Suits in Boots”* with greedy hand
Plunder freely projects grand,
And Shills attest the sleight-of-hand
As arrogance and hubris brand.  

Muskrat? Marijuana land? Et al, all demand
The question: who commands?
Who’s biggest suit from Newfoundland?

Democracy’s a thin veneer -
Lip service only, leads the cheer.
Dishonesty comes with curling sneer
As strings are pulled for elite sphere.

Does Province vie in corruption van
With Stans, Somalias, and Sudan
As numbers veil the anchorman?

  1. That no comments are made on this verse, so appropriate as to what is being exposed, and what we see, at the Inquiry speaks to the lack of appreciation of this art form in our province and by UG readers.
    Hats off to the Bard, and keep on truckin.

    1. I'd have to respectfully disagree.. needless to say this a a busy time of year for many... even the UG readership has to take time from posting commentary to celebrate the holidays... cheers and Happy New Year!
