On Monday

With multi-million

Dollar deals dropping

All around,

Oh yes, the Chinese

Have arrived,

They’ve done Vancouver

And the major centers,

Now it’s The Island,

On Monday

Stretching to squeeze

A multi-thousand

Dollar deal together,

One puts things

In perspective,

It’s simply a matter

Of zeroes

And the Dollarama line-up

Generates multi-faceted

Smiles and grins.

Short And Long

Life is short,

Some stories long,

And unless one is

New to the planet

Or a raving idiot,

One doesn’t believe


That newscasters babble.

That’s written on Facebook

Or in the National Enquirer,

And one is never surprised

At what people do,

But sometimes surprised

At who.
