Looking For A Leader

Thinking about the coming

Canadian election,

Oil prices in the toilet

Our dollar at eighty cents,

Inflation and unemployment

Knocking,

Wars and strife all around,

Who is a leader who might

Lead us through,

One who talks but no walk,

One who hides behind protocol,

Governor General’s skirts,

And in closets,

Or one who stands up

In the front,

Puts himself on the line,

Has guts, brains and courage.
