I Suppose It Was

Have you ever overheard

A conversation

That you can’t

Get out of your mind?


Two women were talking…

When I was younger

I was attracted to this older man,

I so wanted to make love to him.

Did you?


But years later I ran into him.

What happened?


But a bit later circumstances

Changed and we did.

How was it?

No one has ever

Made me feel that way

Before or since.

Did you see him again?


He died shortly after.


That sounds like an old movie.

In a way I suppose it does,

In a way I suppose it was.

Trumorneau will be

Sunny ways

But today

Call in the clouds,

Hide the overseas

 Villas and investments,

The off shore havens,

Trumorneau will be

Open and transparent

But today

Pull down the darkness,

Canadians are comfortable

With that,

Promise them

A middle class,

Point at doctors and

Small business ones

For copping out on paying
