The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - The next governor general of Canada

The next governor general of Canada

by

James Bredin


The next governor general should be Irish through and true,
I think Ill nominate myself because I know were overdue,
Weve had Quebec, China and Haiti represented there,
Time we had some real Irish - not descendants -- in on this affair.

Unfortunately they say that French is a requirement there,
I once spoke Gaelic fluently and Im keenly aware,
And in these days of instant translation I could pretend,
And nobody would know as I go through the motions and defend.

I sometimes watch French TV stations and understand a few words,
I could be as good as some of those previous appointed nerds,
I could sign papers and smile and go to various meetings,
And if necessary I could extend greetings or give beatings.
