SpokenWord Saturday

On the doorstep of the 2015 Canadian Federal Election, I am watching a talented youth poet named Hannah Berry.  This SpokenWord Saturday, I share with you Hannah’s poem ‘Wax Leader‘ – the poem I remember being most impressed by at Hullabaloo.  If you or anyone needs any more reminding why to vote Harper out, listen to Hannah’s words:

“There is a wax man we call our leader.

I have had the unfortunate experience of looking directly into its uninhabited eyes.
As I stared back,

I suddenly knew what empathy looks like when it dies.”
