Here is Shayna's Poem

if we had more than one referendum, it would be referenda day

 

sharpen your pencils

wide range of categories

label and identify

 

half of Canadians are working in their dream job

seven out of ten of respondents say they feel valued

we have this privilege

are you in your dream job?

 

what does it say?

Break it down

 

light rain falling

not too rainy

a fair bit of moisture

showers today

more rain tomorrow

 

dire economic straits

you're scared to tell the farmers it's raining so you're just gonna play jazz

whenever you hear gypsy jazz something's wrong

unsupervised unsanctioned events held in fields

deadly earthquake

7.7 magnitude

what's happening on the roads out there?

there seems to be a prevalence of pool halls and dance halls

coarse behaviour and lewd behaviour

you'll see the wizard of oz in everything from juice boxes to jewelry and beauty products

 

take back the night

 

support the youngsters and have a pint

we'll win regardless of sweater design
