Protest letters


In the old filing cabinet I painted pink
is a green hanging folder, labeled
MAIL FROM THE GOVERNMENT
with letters from correspondents of
“the Right Honourable” so-and-so
reading Dear Mr. and Ms. Valued Voter,
thank you for your letter regarding
        the bullshit Conference Board IP reports
        police internet snoop bills C-46 and C-47
        illegal illuminated tri-vision billboard at Yonge/Gerrard
        acceptable levels of tritium in Ontario drinking water
        the federal government’s environmental thumb-twiddling

My childhood Dear Diaries are replaced
with Prime Ministers, Premiers, Mayors,
MPs, MPPS, City Councillors,
Community Boards and Ministers
numerous as the saints.

And we're gonna keep annoying the hell out of them until they do something. :)
