Progressive poetry blogburst

Skdadl, at Peace, order and good government, eh?, started a progressive poetry blogburst tribute to the Court Challenges Program recently axed by Stephen Harper’s New Government of Canada.  Here’s my hurried contribution, a variation on hypertext poetry.

Six lines for the Court Challenges Program

When PMS strikes the pain can be great
just ask those who struggle to gain
equity for all. Pinned down, muzzled

an insult to democracy, this assault
on Canadians who struggle for change,
to lose programs ensuring human rights.

In keeping with the practice, if you read this, you’ve been tagged!
