Far Too Canadian
Created by Brenda Li
It’s so hot; my igloo’s melting
I’m chopping trees, my neighbour’s smelting
It’s like Minecraft, but our beavers bite!
They lodge in our houses but we never fight
Beer in hand, maple syrup in demand
It’s like we don’t even own this land!
My hockey game is my pride
To the lake on loonie-wheels we ride
To see the sticks clash and ice skates stroke
At home with bacon sizzling, tepid patriotic inklings we evoke
Yesterday, an American wanted our prized rabbit pelt
“Sorry!” we say, “We gave it to the Brits last night,” and knelt.
