The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Scarborough Town Center

Scarborough Town Center

by

James Bredin


The Scarborough Town Center is the place you should go,

You can follow the flow by subway, car, bus or go slow,

You may meet your mother, your brother or second cousin clown,

'Cause they're already there strolling around and up and down.

Walking by Wal Mart, past the Bay by Sears looking all around,

Many muttering into cell phones trying to look profound,

Some talk in Korean, mothers in Mandarin, sisters in Serb,

While others hurry in silence never speaking one verb.

But you'll hear English and Finish, German, Russian and Greek,

And one or two girls prancing their extraordinary physiques.

In this parade of passing people from all around the globe,

I think I saw a holy man in a strange exotic robe.

And busloads of seniors come from all over Ontario,

Wandering through the food court absorbing this scenario,

Even Americans come to cure their curiosity,

'Cause they've heard of this place and all the generosity.
