Becoming Canadian

For Print 2
Rejoice, Your Majesty!
hire a jester, a circus, a singer
for you have acquired in your service
yet another trigger happy finger
and even though this one happens to be brown
there shall be nary a blemish on your shiny crown
for to be forever faithful, I did take the oath
no matter how it made my colonial soul loath
oh how it made the heart fume and seethe
while I said the very words through gritted teeth
as I kept my mind focused on the prize
never once letting it escape my eyes
that piece of paper issued in your name
and even though I find monarchy, a concept lame
your passport is mighty, that much is true
what’s a poor colonial to do?
if one wishes to travel the world unchallenged, unfettered
to her Majesty’s royal bosom, one must choose to remain tethered

Thank you. Canada also needs to stop pretending it's still a colony with a distant queen in charge.
