The Election of Broken Promises

September 21, 2020

It is less than one full day since Horgan called a Provincial election, and already we know that the NDP are not a party to be trusted.

In calling for an early election, they have decided that the law (which fixes the date of the next election) does not apply to them. And their signature on the Confidence and Supply Agreement they signed with the Green Party (in which Horgan agreed not to call an early election) also means nothing when it seems better for the NDP to ignore it.

This is naked power-grabbing,

During the last election, the NDP campaigned against Site C, against fracking, and in favour of treating indigenous peoples with full respect. In the last three years they have broken all of those promises in spades!

Fool me once, shame on you. But I am not fool enough to fall for the same BS again.

Poem: Last Playboy of the West End

September 21, 2020


He stands erect

his jacket checked at the door.

Surveys the floor

where dancers more or less perform

to an MTV norm

writhing and circling by.

With his casual clothes

and his casual attitude

to casual sex

he is already a casualty

rushing headlong for an accident

and it meets him tonight in the form of


a Barbie-doll beauty with C-cup breasts

and a heart full of

barbarous revenge.

She picks him

she tricks him

she licks

his ego

until he stands tall and hopeful.

He buys her a drink and engages in chat

while he makes sure that

he doesn’t smell too bad.

“Come back to my pad

and fuck me,” she croons

He swoons and tries to play it cool

but his head bobs up and down

like a fat man on a trampoline.

She drives

he strives to keep it in his pants

tries to make small talk

but just kind of rants

about nothing in particular,

his cock bent reticular in anticipation.

She parks and barks,

“We’re here.”

In the condo

he tries to fondle her charms,

but she wriggles from his arms.

“Show me what you got to arouse us.”

So he drops his trousers.


His flagpole slowly wanes in the breeze of her

obvious indifference.

Less than impressed

she refuses to divest

the clothes from her blessed


Instead, like a cat, she screeches,

“Whaddya call that?

Some kind of bonsai?

I’ve had 12 year olds bigger than you, boy,

and 70 year old royals making me come.

So I’m not gonna sleep

with some self-absorbed creep

with a prick the size of my thumb.”


He went home by bus

didn’t make a fuss

just pulled the trigger

gave a small shiver

like the third orgasm of the night

It was the first thing he’d done right

all day.
