I saw today a demonstration against the Government.
It was not a multitude of irate people yelling.
It was not a bunch of angry students shouting slogans.
It was not a gang of mad unions asking for more rights.
It was an old woman
She was sitting on her knees outside Manulife Centre,
with a small package of cigarettes, trying to sell them by the piece.
When I came back, she was not there, security had removed her,
In her table may not be food tonight.
I thought that those women were in the South
Where corruption, ignorance and nature give poverty,
I said “not here in the True North”,
“with the Strong and Free those things never happen”
I never though I would see it here,
I never though there were such demonstrations against the government.
