Poetry Corner: “The Great Canadian Roast Turkey Manslaughter”

The great Canadian roast turkey manslaughter

58% of Canadians admitted in a recent poll they left their bubble in 2020 to other homes for a roast turkey Christmas feast
Over 20 Canadian politicians warmed their toes on foreign beaches
This is not what public health officials preache

Hospitals are bursting
Refrigerated tractor trailers and getting ready
Wasn’t your friend and family time so heady
Thank your fellow Canadians for making a Christmas surge
If we knew who you are you would be welcome to be named in a criminal manslaughter purge
Almost all of you will hide your guilt
But if you want entry into the pearly gates
you’ll be forced into never ending waits
