Welcome to The Soviet republic of Camerica

Welcome to The Soviet republic of Camerica

A Poem by Lyn Anderson
"

How Justin lost his shirt over the world's largest undefended border

"

"He's pretty,"

said Donald.

 

"Agreed,"

said Vlad,

"But what I really want,

Is Justin's pad."

 

"Not all of it,

dear comrade,

surely you must see,

there's quite enough

for us to have,

from sea to shining sea."

 

The north and west is full of trees,

and mineable soil,

diamonds, pipelines, bees,

and frackable fields of oil;

 -- riches a'plenty

some for you, and some for me.


I'll keep Justin busy,

you know he likes his parties --

a presidential suite for him & the little miss,

while Canadians pay for his two nannies,

as you work your magic to dismiss

those pesky ancestral treaties.

 

The east already 

sells us power for cheaper

than we can make it,

at that price dear Vlad,

you are very

welcome to take it.


We can hand over Manitoba,

and Whistler would be a nice reward,

so Justin can keep his snowboard.

we'll send him back to Ottawa --

with some fine Vancouver weed,

there's nothing there we need.

 

As for those Canadians,

they just aren't into rebellions,

we both know they are too polite

To put up a serious fight."

For the record, in the War of 1812, America attempted an invasion of Canada and failed because they were too scared of our wilderness.

F**k Trump, and f**k the American piece of s***s who think it'll all work out. It won't. You'd forgotten fear, so you elected a fascist. And now you will remember.

I lived in Canada as a landed immigrant during the Senior Trudeau era. I loved it then and now, after our election, wish I would have stayed! You have done a great job of illuminating the scary bromance between Trump and Putin. Yes, lets hope something does scare him away or better yet, he will be caught in his own web of lies.
"not my president"
Thank you for sharing!

Thanks. However the junior Trudeau is not his father, that's for sure.

Wonderfully constructed as I too fear for us in the next 4 years, hoping somebody better wins in 2020.

Thanks for reading and reviewing.
So, pretty straight forward then....politicians worldwide are chancers. Phew, glad I understand now...Means I don't have to try explain our predicament, where we have voted to leave the EU, want another divorce hearing from England and have an affair with Europe behind England's back, Honestly, it's no wonder we like a drink :)

Well done, KL. Boy wonder is certainly not his dad, who actually had some substance. Now, if only we could do something about the illustrious leader of Ontario.

Yes you did!
i have been much more fearful of Biden and Obama than of Trump ;) Biden for 8 yrs was kept busy in locked closets as he had such a big foot that always gravitated to his big mouth ..fear mongering has been a hallmark of disgruntled parties on the loosing stick's end .. i appreciate the concerns you raise ..Russia has never been cozy with anyone as they are self interested only .. Obama failed to act at all .. until recently as he goes out of office .. Hillary pushed the "reset button" with Putin and was cheered for the administrations efforts ... which dismally failed .. we will all have to wait and see i guess .. and live with fears until they are assuaged or (to our horror) realized .. i believe in the American people .. i believe that most belong to the sleeping giant party that is a great, strong, resilient force that first imagined a country ruled by the people and for the people .. thank you so much for opening my eyes to this Canadian response to our election .. i honestly would not have considered it at all .. not realizing how one nation truly does effect another .. i am hoping for the best Kl .. very glad to have read this .. for some reason it struck me that it may have been better written in more of a prose form .. but that could be because i get excited about politics and skipping over your intended breaks ;)

but a really good imagining of how it really is...and of what scares us...those just letting it happen and not paying attention...

Supposedly the wall will never apply to us. He likes Canada. Uh huh. That's what worries me.

As well it should, after he's through making a disaster area down here, he's coming for you next!
love the wit and sarcasm, for the record I would like to say I did not vote for him because he is all about appearances and has no real balls
