RKS Poetry: “Canada’s Trucker Terrorists”

Canada’s Trucker Terrorists

A sick and tired of it all populist movement mushrooms
TV dinner eating good Canadians huddle over their President’s Choice fare
listening to  a Prime Minister and a mayor of Ottawa
gathering “intelligence” about the “insurrectionists”
cutting off gas supplies to the terrorist truckers
the biggest threat to democracy in Canada they howl
a Trumpian conspiracy full of evil Americans waving confederate flags
and Nazi symbols
cut off crowd funding
a nervous state on the attack
on the edge of an imaginary FLQ moment
is the man with a nice tattoo on his arm
proudly displayed in the media dutifully getting his jab
is the next step a 1970 father’s famous, “Just Watch Me”
invoking the War Measures Act to clear out the trucker terrorists
so we can breathe and make sure that democracy is not torn
and no longer must we listen to that bloody horn!
