Penticton Western News letters to the editor.

Letter: Political poem

The sun will shine the rain will fall the four winds have you hanging off the political wall

This letter for a has been is overdue.

Time to park the hard hat and the smile as a crack has appeared longer than a country mile. Take a break for a very long while, being an ordinary person is like a pig in a poke so come down to earth and visit some real folk.

Big bad John may not be so bad for B.C. even though you may think he is a cad. At least you were right predicting you would make B.C. brighter — now you can be an outer-sighter.

Be seen but not heard like those you describe as an ordinary person. Relax, have a toke, as for losing it’s not a joke.

The sun will shine the rain will fall the four winds have you hanging off the political wall. Cleaning the air in China along with your dreams of LNG — pipelines, dams and jobs for all, is stored in memory with your increased B.C. debt and all.

You got lucky when you first went to bat but alas three green and 41 blue strikes crossed the plate leaving you to consider your fate.

Don’t let the political door hit you in your political —- on the way out, happily you leave behind any political clout.

If I were a piper, I would pipe you out, to the rejoicing sound of many whom long ago had figured you out.
