Special Report: O, Canada

An ode to our illustrious neighbors to the north:

O, Canada!

At first you choked me with your smoke

From fires, far and wide

But Parks and cities soon evoked

The need to be outside

From Kamloops, BC to Calgary

Banff’s hot springs to Jasper’s… everything

Unmatched hospitality

This Yankee soon accepted

Glacial water at high verticality

And wholly unexpected

I find your coins and roundabouts frustrating and obtuse

Despite these things, just one camp out quite easily seduced

Fill up my gut with quite a glut of Timbits and poutine

The former of which are so delish, it borders on obscene

O, Canada, O, Canada,

Our neighbors to the north

O, Canada, O, Canada

You’re in my heart, henceforth
