October 19, 2015

By ten in the evening

On October nineteenth

Two-thousand and fifteen,

The world was good

For many Canadians,

The Jays had beaten

The Royals and were

Now trailing two games

To one,

Justin Trudeau

Had done the seemingly impossible

Crushing Stephen Harper by winning

A one-hundred and eighty-four seat majority,

Taking those who had been there before

Back to nineteen-sixty-eight,

Giving those who weren’t there

A surreal taste of Trudeaumania.
