  1. I like Canadians

     

    By A Foreigner

    I like Canadians.
    They are so unlike Americans.
    They go home at night.
    Their cigarettes don't smell bad.
    Their hats fit.
    They really believe that they won the war.
    They don't believe in Literature.
    They think Art has been exaggerated.
    But they are wonderful on ice skates.
    A few of them are very rich.
    But when they are rich they buy more horses
    Than motor cars.
    Chicago calls Toronto a puritan town.
    But both boxing and horse-racing are illegal
    In Chicago.
    Nobody works on Sunday.
    Nobody.
    That doesn't make me mad.
    There is only one Woodbine.
    But were you ever at Blue Bonnets?
    If you kill somebody with a motor car in Ontario
    You are liable to go to jail.
    So it isn't done.
    There have been over 500 people killed by motor cars
    In Chicago
    So far this year.
    It is hard to get rich in Canada.
    But it is easy to make money.
    There are too many tea rooms.
    But, then, there are no cabarets.
    If you tip a waiter a quarter
    He says 'Thank you.'
    Instead of calling the bouncer.
    They let women stand up in the street cars.
    Even if they are good-looking.
    They are all in a hurry to get home to supper
    And their radio sets.
    They are a fine people.
    I like them.

  2. Jeremiah 20:10 Common English Bible (CEB)

    10 I hear many whispering—
        “Panic Lurks Everywhere!—
        proclaim, yes, let’s proclaim it ourselves!”
    All my friends are waiting for me to stumble:
        “Perhaps he can be enticed.
            Then we’ll prevail against him
                and get our revenge on him!”
