Oh Canada, My Refuge In My Dreams

The Tony Burgess Blog


I had a dream last night where I crossed the border into Canada without a passport or visa. Yep, I was an an undocumented visitor in the land of hockey, poutine and that swell Justin Trudeau.

By the Mighty Mumford

He wishes that redhead were his,

But she’s on an slow fizz…

Not the drink

But a troubled think,

Unfortunately the ignition was his!

She seems volitile,

But his love lights are on full…

Maybe she’ll see

Him more honorably,

And make him her choice to the full!

A  redhead and brunette is where

I stopped worrying about hair…

It’s a full load

Worthy of an ode,

In a lifetime to love and share!

–Jonathan Caswell
