The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Fishing for Cod

Fishing for Cod


James Bredin

Newfi fishermen will soon be forbidden to fish for cod,
‘Cause the government in Ottawa is supreme - they’re god,
And they’ll buy cod from places like Portugal or maybe Spain,
And those Newfi fishermen can survive on welfare and pain,
Because the department in Ottawa knows all about this,
That’s why Trudeau left part of the Banks for foreigners to fish,
Because they know Canadians so seldom complain or think,
Though taxed to the eyes, a 60-cent dollar and a wink.
