Edward Lear

There was an Ol Man of Quebec,
A beetle ran over his neck;
But he cried, 'With a needle,
I'll slay you, O beadle!'
That angry Old Man of Quebec.

Rudyard Kipling

There was a small boy of Quebec
Who was buried in snow to his neck.
When they asked, "Are you friz?"
He replied, "Yes, I is —
But we don't call this cold in Quebec!"

I was so angry to realize I'm a Quebecois, with no past, no history, just two cans of maple syrup.

How To Unite Canada

There are those who think that our Canada has everything right,
And the mention of separatism in Quebec is a fright,
But every now and then the issue becomes front and center,
And out of the woodwork comes one or two Quebecois dissenters.

We need to show the Quebecois that we mean what we say,
Democracy is important to counteract separatist play,
In order to emphasize this we have to sit down and plan change,
Unfortunately our present politicians think this is strange.

Our prime minister should be a different premier each year,
So no politician can turn the position into a career,
The Swiss with binding referendums have true democracy,
A way to counteract our present appointed aristocracy.

A Tailor who sailed from Quebec,
In a storm ventur'd once upon deck,
But the waves of the sea,
Were as strong as could be,
And he tumbled in up to his neck.

Recognizing Quebec as being different, recognizing our history, recognizing our identity, has never meant a weakening of Quebec and has never been a threat to national unity.

More Referendums Aug 23rd,2012

Quebec separatists are not foreigners; they're us,
They want a referendum to cause Ottawa a great fuss,
We ourselves should also have a referendum and maybe two,
Binding referendums and Death with Dignity are overdue.

Ottawa trying to buy Quebec with equalization money,
Hidden in some government program and not very funny,
We all should be delighted to partake in two referendums soon,
National referendums interfering in their Quebec cocoon.

Our problem is not Quebec separatists but we ourselves,
Without referendums; we're like stuff forgotten on old shelves,
Two referendums with the separatists; means common ground for all,
Do more for Canada than Ottawa aristocrats, not on call.

Counter Quebec Referendum Aug 18th,2012

COUNTER QUEBEC REFERENDUM AUG 18TH 2012
BY
JAMES BREDIN


The Quebec referendum is really our opportunity too,
Our chance to show them that our democracy can break through,
To counter the Quebec separatist movement; we need to change,
Binding referendums and mandatory votes should not be strange.




But how do we get our Ottawa politicians to pay attention?
Get the lead out and counteract all this apprehension,
Ottawa should come around and down to earth to help us all,
Our referendums in Quebec might get the separatists to forestall.

CHANGE TRUDEAU'S CHARTER May 4th,2011

To those folk in Quebec who haven’t signed the constitution yet,
Demand Trudeau’s Charter and Chretien’s law be changed and we’re set,
Then get death with dignity and a binding referendum law,
Then sit down and figure out if there are any other flaws.

Because some old sick folk need death-with-dignity like the Swiss,
But this is something our politicians are inclined to dismiss,
And we need binding referendums in order to improve,
In case there is something or someone we want to remove.

If we are going to change the Constitution we have to think,
A political party is second to a people link,
One provincial premier should be prime minister each year,
So the Quebecois or nobody else have anything to fear.

More Dwd Oct 8th,2012

Death with dignity was not mentioned in Trudeau's Charter of Rights,
Therefore our politicians avoid this issue with great delight,
But our Supreme Court banned it and Sue Rodriguez had to die,
Their rule was law for all Canadians and it had to apply.

The Americans in Oregon and Washington have it now,
It's a state issue there and doesn't seem to cause any row,
It's where Americans can decide when and where and how to die,
But Canadians are banned though no one really knows why.

Quebec might try to make it a provincial issue here,
Where Quebecois could look forward to death with no great fear,
So it's obvious that this issue is not going away soon,
Unfortunately the Supreme Court is not known to change its tune.

Le Cowboy Du Quebec

J'ai dix piastres dans mes poches
Et mon char est plain d'gaz
Et tous va bien dans ma vie
Dans mon habit du dimanche
et la belle lune qui est blanche
Ce soir j'vais danser c'est samedi

Je suis le cowboy du Quebec
Je chants des chansons que j'ai faite
Avec une Ange pour ma blonde
Ma guitar et mon mondes
Je suis le cowboy du quebec

Mon vieux char usage
Et comme i'll brille mes souliers
Parraille comme une vieille peau d'chien
Avec une belle coupe de ch'veux
Et un bon razoir neuf
Ce soir j'vait d'i proposer

Canada is like an old cow. The West feeds it. Ontario and Quebec milk it. And you can well imagine what it's doing in the Maritimes.

There once was a man from Quebec
Who's chickens had no need to peck;
A lady named Betty
Hand fed them spaghetti
As they lay on their backs on the deck.

My great hope would be that Quebec would realize itself fully as a distinct part of Canada, and stay Canadian, bringing to Canada a part of its richness.

The Taking Of Quebec

STANZAS ON THE TAKING OF QUEBEC, AND DEATH OF
GENERAL WOLFE


AMIDST the clamour of exulting joys,
Which triumph forces from the patriot heart,
Grief dares to mingle her soul-piercing voice,
And quells the raptures which from pleasures start.
O WOLFE! to thee a streaming flood of woe,
Sighing we pay, and think e'en conquest dear;
QUEBEC in vain shall teach our breast to glow,
Whilst thy sad fate extorts the heart-wrung tear.
Alive the foe thy dreadful vigour fled,
And saw thee fall with joy-pronouncing eyes:
Yet they shall know thou conquerest, though dead--
Since from thy tomb a thousand heroes rise!

Aftab - Alphabet poetry

Aftab bought chatter-box Daisy
Elephant fully grown;
Her instant judgement kind-off loud.

Made news.
Oldham papers, Quebec radio,
Soviet television.

Universal view was
X-rated, yobbish,
zealot.
