The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Canada needs conscription

Canada needs conscription


James Bredin

Canadians need the draft to finally get it right,
Get all young Canadians together to coach and unite,
Get a handle on multiculturalism and speech,
Teach the other language or can we step into that breach?

Show the world and ourselves that we are not completely lost,
In some UN soft power struggle or Kyoto exhaust,
With our governor general prancing somewhere on the globe,
Are we Canadian, French, English or some UN microbe?

Because somehow or other we’re still not united or sure,
Our politicians and appointees seem mighty immature,
Trying to impress the world that we are what we are not,
Sending soldiers to Afghanistan to show them that we’re hot.
